I’m so happy that I finally found galloon lace wide enough to make this back option of the Marbella!
I got a lot of questions about wearing a bra with the Marbella… Being part of the itty-bitty-titty-committee I can get away with no bra, but I know for most of my sewing sisters it ain’t so. This back option is perfect to wear a bra underneath and still rock the Marbella’s lace back! Even better if you combine it with the shelf bra hack posted on the NH’s blog.
This time around I found it a bit tricky to hem the lace because I didn’t have serger thread to match this color and being lace, you can see the thread underneath. I used wondertape and hemmed it using a twin needle (you can still see the tape because I was too enthusiastic to show it to you, so I didn’t wash it before taking photos :D)
The fabric I used is regular CL , and I must confess that using other fabrics for my previous Marbellas, I found this one a bit… meh. I LOVE the lace back, but from the front it’s a bit too bland maybe?
All I know is that I’ll definitely repeat this back option for sure, but will probably get matching serger thread the next time. 😉
