Description

I’ve been wanting to make this project for months and I couldn’t be happier with the results! It took a lot of time to sew but it was worth it.

Please come visit me here for more photos and details.

Material Notes

Even with the large repeat in the lace motif, I managed to use only one yard, since the scalloped edges were the same on both selvedges.

I used a wool and cashmere super 180 that was a good deal because it was a remainder and why not?

Lined with Bemberg.

      Thank you! I didn’t have a special occasion in mind but I did want something that would work day to evening. It’s a little dressy for my office but I don’t care!
