    Hello all, I have 3 yards of white lace fabric, non stretchy and I am wondering what can I make with it. I am considering a dress that doesn’t look very bridal. Any suggestions?

    With only three yards, it is going to have to be a shift or possibly an A-line? Is that the sort of style you normally wear?

    I do wear shift dress, what underlining do you suggest? I think white underlay will make it very bridal.

    I don’t think there is any danger of a short, white dress being mistaken for bridal wear these days and I really wouldn’t line white lace in anything other than white.

    I would keep the pattern simple and let the lace do the talking.

    McCall’s 7681 could be great with the sleeve variations.
