A Little Lace

Hi All ,

I love remnant fabrics the possibilities and the inventive approach you need to make what you desire.

This gorgeous lace was a remnant from a store called Pitt Trading in Ramsgate NSW.

It is cream and grey and I wanted the big sleeves and I also love the edge of the lace ,so I needed to figure out a way to make best use of it.

Using my tried and true stretch bodice block I cut out the front and back and also the sleeve just to below the elbow.

The seams are all french seams and the neckline is a self bind.

This was a really quick make but it is gorgeous to wear.

The sleeve frills are just gathered into the the sleeve and stitched. My luck was such that I am short enough to be able to get this top out of the piece I had.

A camisole is needed under as it is sheer but just a delight.LaceSDtop

Now I really must update you on what has been happening with me.


So sorry it has been awhile since I posted but life is really busy.

I started my costume and Millinery courses and with them I also got a job working 4 days a week sewing. So I went from loads of time to scrambling to fit everything in. I am now down to two days work and on Study break although I have loads of work to get done for my course.

I will share my costume makes later no pictures of them yet.

I hope your creations are working for you,

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂
