Simplicity 2015 1080 Dottie Angel: Black on black, part I

This is a quick side project.  I'm still tweaking this pattern.  I reconfigured the waist tucks and lowered the applied belts to basically the "real" waistline (belly button height).  The fabric is Exclusively Quilters Paloma black-on-black bird and vine print; I got it on clearance as a bolt end and I love the design.  Black lace trim on the hem, armscyes, and bound neckline.  I'm almost done--I just have to sew on one more button, cut the buttonholes, and do a little seam finishing.

Applying the lace to the hem:
