Anyway, this stately grey Anthropologie dress was a gift from my Mom when I graduated high school. Funny enough, the lace napkin/doily thing was also a Mom gift after she found it at an antique store. I took the lace, pinned it to the sleeve so it would stay in the proper place, and began sewing. It was so intricate and detailed that it had to be hand-sewn, and I put hours and hours into doing just that. After both sleeves were finished, I took a pair of scissors to the grey part so that the lace would be the edging. Adds a bit of much-needed ornateness.
