Lacey Dolman

I'm continuing to power through my lovely box of fabrics from FabricMart Fabrics.  Ooooo, and this one was really fun to make.  This antique white wavy pucker lace knit was described as "springy" and that's exactly what it is.  It's very exciting to get fabric in the mail but it's even more exciting when it ends up being what you expected!

The new spring Simplicity patterns just came out and I brought home a fashionable few and 1463 was among them.  I rarely buy fabric with an exact pattern in mind but I knew with this knit I wanted to make some sort of top and this was pretty and looked like a "quick sew"....and it was!  It was about 2 hours total cut and sew time.  Yay!

I didn't make any changes to the pattern and it sewed up like a dream.  I used a twin needle to finish the hem and to topstitch the neckline.  I'll be making it again....this time in a stripe.

Here are my reviews on PatternReview and Kollabora.

  1. I sure would love to see it on you. I'd like to see how those sleeves look on a real body.
