I've noticed a lot of lace on clothes lately and am loving it! What happened to the lace in my wardrobe? There used to be quite a bit, but for some reasons there's none left. I had some lace I took off of a thrift store vest, a white knit shirt from Goodwill - this was meant to be!
I first dyed the shirt with Procion pewter and didn't like it. So I over dyed the shirt with Procion Cobalt Blue. Much better! The shirt had a small placket with two buttons - I cut those two buttons off, pinned the lace over it (and extended it a bit to make a longer placket), and continued up and around the back of the collar back to the front.
I then hand sewed the lace on. The buttons were already sewn onto the lace, so I didn't have to sew them on separately.
Hmmm - I think this is the beginning of getting lace back in my wardrobe!
Happy Creating! Deborah
