Ughh, sleep depravity has been murdering my soul. So, when this happens I don’t sew…..sorry. However, the reason I don’t sleep is because I’m always thinking so that means more to posts! Right?
Let’s get to the real reason we’re here!
I went back to Chicago in May to see my family. At my mother’s, I found out she had all of this left over lace from the my wedding dress (which she made!).
When I first received the fabric, I wanted to make a lace coat but there wasn’t enough. So, I rummaged through some old magazines for inspiration. I wasn’t really getting anything except peplum and I already had plans for that trend, so I kind of set it aside and forgot about it all together. Well, after letting it sit in a fabric box for 3 months, I ran across an article in Lucky. A cropped lace top styled 4 ways! Why didn’t I think of that? Check it out:
How about a closer look?
Well, I wanted a better look at this top because I’m not much of a cropped top kind of girl, but it was styled so perfectly that I could not resist. After going to Bebe’s website and getting a closer look at the top, I instantly had the urge…nay….the obligation to make this top for myself. There’s nothing I love more than pairing something girly with an edgier piece like my Zara studded boots. Ahhhhh, I can see it now. So, I will be making a mock up of the top to make sure that it lays perfectly. Then I will move on to the fabric below:
So puuuurty!!! Stay tuned!
