To cut a long story short – I managed to produce a paper pattern for the jeans that looks impressive on its own. I tested it on a bit of calico and while there were still some issues to be sorted – it wasn’t too bad, so went for the real thing.
Now on to the star of the show – the lace T-shirt. This is the Three Bears T but made in lace — actually a lace curtain from the same fabric shop. Across the shoulders and top it’s just lace but I cut up an old white t-shirt and added the body of it on the lower half for modesty’s sake.
So there are two layers on the body of the T and I quite like the way the T-shirt bit hangs down. I used the finished edge of the old T-shirt as a ready made hem. All in all this took 1 hour to make.
Just need to consider appropriate underwear for this item
While I am not actively participating in Me-Made May because I practically wear only home made clothes most of the time I think this little ensemble would qualify as a Me-Drafted and Made-May outfit.
Thanks for reading. Ruth
