Description

I originally wanted a black lace shirt that wasn’t see-through. But when I bought the lace, I liked the scalloped edges and thought it would be a waste to cut them off. So I decided not to cover the whole shirt in lace. Instead I sewed down the scalloped edges 2 inches away from the centre-front edge.

The buttons were from a jacket.

    AMAZING, Congratulations! I love lace, but usually not on myself, it somehow looks too frilly and feminine when I wear it. But this is something I could possibly pull off, too. Thank you so much for sharing, it’s an inspiration!

    This is so pretty! How did you cover the white fabric with the lace so it looks so neat? I’ve got some lovely flowery chiffon that I want to use in a similar fashion, but I have no idea how/where to start.
