I went to see my friend a few weeks ago and was asking her little girl if she was excited about being bridesmaid, she beamed from ear to ear. But when I discovered she couldn’t find any socks frilly and princess enough to wear with her dress I stepped up and took to the challenge. I’d recently raided my mums sewing supplies and came across some pure lace, and imagined her walking up the aisle with this sewn into her socks. I took it all home and began my challenge…..
Trying various ways I decided to pin the layers and it took a while to figure out how to stop it from lying flat. The first attempt always takes longer, I sat there with the television on wondering the best way of achieving this when it came to be like a lightening bolt (that happens alot).
The layers pictured here is how I started, but I started gathering and decided that it would probably be best to do them separate so after taking it apart I gathered and tacked at the same time.
Once I started I couldn’t stop, the lace was also slightly cream so when I sewed it on to the little girls white socks you could see they weren’t part of the sock so I also soaked the socks along with the attached lace in a bowl of warm water with dissolved vanish…..worked like a charm.
Needless to say there was one pretty bridesmaid (not just because of her socks) dancing on the dance floor that night…..
