Description

Nothing too special here, just a stashbusting project to use up some leftover secondhand sheets & curtain lace. A simple top with a lace back and a pleat in the front. I’m standing by a breadfruit tree which is the source of one my favorite fried street foods in Benin.

I wrote more in my sewing journal here: http://cathywu.com/journal/treadling/2013/05/26/blayflootee-lace-blocked-colette-sorbetto/
