Lace Poncho – BurdaStyle 05/2013 #133

Despite the lace being a lovely vintage 70s silky woven lace remnant, it did have to be stabilized while sewing to prevent wavy edges, plus I had to bind the edges with strips of the same lace to make the sides look straighter. There wasn’t a large enough single piece of the same lace for the pattern in my stash, so I had to sew together several pieces of the lace to make the right size, which took a bit more time. If you studied it hard you’d see the seams/joins, but it gives it a boho, personal touch lol. The sleeves are a little shorter and the hem a little longer than the base pattern, but I still like it. I really like the floral pattern and scallop hem on the lace, and the V-neck being also on the back of the pattern. Location: Westmere
