Lace inserts

I found these two lace inserts on Etsy... I've been thinking about the neckline at the front of my dress, and I might try the white one as an overlay on the bodice. The last dress on this blog post has a cute little bit of lace peeking out from the neckline, and it's super cute.

The navy applique would be for a flower girl dress or my sister's dress.

Another adorable bridal pattern made it's way here... this is McCall 8527

And a dress pattern with a nice back pleat:

I'll have to think about how to incorporate the back pleat with my empire waist, like doing the pleat entirely below the band of the empire waist.
