Patience makes perfect

I was looking for red taffeta with a pattern, but I couldn't find it. I came up with this solution. A base fabric of strawberry red taffeta (picture doesn't do the color justice) with a layer of black lace. In order to be able to work the layers as one they have to be sewn together.

First I tried to sew them together with my machine, but the taffeta is very slippery and the lace stretches, so it didn't turn out well. Now I have to sew them together by hand with large stitches and then sew them together with my sewingmachine. Hopefully this works. But it takes a lot of time, work and patience... And I am not a patient person ;-)

These panels are going to be the sides and back of my wash overskirt.
