Perfectly Purple Halloween Lace

Sep 16, 2017

Purple.  Halloween.  Lace.  Fabric from Vintage Lace.
These are a few of my favorite things.

It has been a hot minute since I’ve made the Layer Me Up shirt from Patterns for Pirates.  Probably since right around when it first came out.  Let’s just say that I was a little more svelte back then and my desire for clothes that weren’t skin tight had me sway from that pattern a bit.  But for some reason, I really thought a form fitting top would be great with this gorgeous lace print from Vintage Lace, so I went for it.

SO GLAD I DID.  It’s actually helping me realize that the exercise/butt kicking I’ve been giving myself since school started back for Louis is helping.  Or maybe the fabric is magic.  Either way, I’ll take it.

I had a little bit of stretch lace left over from another project and thought it would be a fun detail to add to this top.  I simply took the back bodice piece and cut it to be a lower scoop, but made sure it would still be above my bra line.  And then I calculated a new binding measurement for myself, attached it….then sewed the lace on after it was all said and done.

Bingo bango.  Stretch lace, with a lace print, from Vintage Lace.  Lace on lace on lace.  Love it.

This print is going up for a retail sale starting 9/20.  There are other colorways of Halloween laces and each of them are GORGEOUS.  Plus, they have a ton of other fall and Halloween fabrics available.  But you’ll need fast fingers, because their retail fabrics go quick!
