I love repurposing. House linens sometimes make the best material for a new wearable piece for my wardrobe! Lace has an especially lovely place in my heart and some of these DIY’s are my most favorite.
Trash to Couture made the loveliest peasant blouse from curtains! The spaghetti straps, dropped sleeves, the lining…it’s just darling! A must have summer top!
A Pair and a Spare made a super nod to a designer version of a lined lace skirt. The bright pop of color behind the lace is perfect to pair with either ecru or white lace. Depending on the open weave of the lace, more or less color will peek through but it adds a great boost to an otherwise neutral piece.
How often do you run across these decorator round lace accent tablecloths? Love the idea of even trimming the cut edge with a pretty ribbon but By Wilma has taken one and made a cute and quick poncho! What a fun idea and accent over your shoulders with a neutral tank!
Tablecloth tunics…why not! The scallop of the edges lends to a fun edge and the sleeve design is so flattering! Julie Crisp shared her tutorial on DIY Fashion and the finished piece is adorable. She used an existing blouse as her pattern, just cut an inch around your favorite for seam allowances.
Need just a hint of lace? Start with a lace runner and place a loose stitch down the center to draw it together a bit, for a cute, light scarf! A Beautiful Mess started with a mesh lace and her finished piece is perfect for summer!
Enjoy these breezy looks and the beginning of our gorgeous weather!
