50’s Black and Blue Lace

September 17, 2010

Here is my latest. I used faille and lace. I LOVE FAILLE!!! It is so soft and it resist wrinkles. It has a beautiful drape. I usually make this with short sleeves but my customer requested 3/4 sleeves with a 50’s cuff that buttoned. I didn’t capture the color well with my camera. You can go to my blog to see the actual swatch and where I purchased the lace.

  1. I drafted it all but the skirt myself.

    The skirt is just a full circle skirt.

    I have been getting hesitant to put instructions on how to do some of my items as there is a shop on Etsy that uses it and then sells the same item I have.

  2. Really amazing! I'd love to see it on the model. And excited to hear about faille…just bought some to make my first non-cotton project.

  3. It's really beautiful Eileen, so stunning. It's a shame that you have that experience on Etsy, though. It's ironic because I thought creative people thought for themselves! I guess not all of them do, or they're not that creative. At any rate, I love tis and would love to see it "on".
