Mesh has become the new lace and here it adds a great element of fun to my latest resortwear beach dress. The pattern I used is Very Easy Very Vogue 8098, released in 1971 and purchased for $2.00! I eliminated both the center front and back seams choosing to place them on folds. Also made a V-neckline in the front and back. There was something totally liberating about this project where facings were forgotten along with traditional hems and a serger quickly and easily finished the edges - a task that could have taken hours to sew by hand!
