Old lace

This top was my Christmas present to Rosalie. I designed it around a beautiful but fairly small piece of old lace. I sewed the sides of the piece of lace into princess seams, then gathered in the body of the top. It ended up having a very wide square neckline, with the straps so far off to the sides they look like cap sleeves in some of these pictures, but it was important to me to use the entire piece of lace. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Why was I up on a ladder in my last post? To take this photo!

Of course after we took it we thought of the green door which was a much better place for these photos. Such a pretty color, and no need for anyone to climb on anything.

    Love the lace on the top. I might have to try my hand at it. Also a lovely young lady posing for the picture.
