"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Easy-peasy

Friday, June 27, 2008


I found this lace shouldered tank by Behnaz Sarafpour for Target at the thrift store and it was cute but missing something and that something was a vintage doily. Literally five minutes later, I am in heaven.
I am such a sucker for vintage doilies. I have one in a picture frame on my living room wall. I am thinking of making a skirt inspired by this one out of several doilies

And, while I am on the subject, this skirt is the bomb. It was at a local shop and hand-made out of pieces of vintage lace. It was all $600. That is till the shop was closing and I stopped by on a whim and it was like $80 and a size 2. PERFECT (but still also the most expensive clothing I own, other than maybe a winter coat and one pair of boots)

Wow! How did you attach the doily to your shirt? It was practically made for it!

I so desperately wish I was crafty...

Also, that skirt is amazing. So, so amazing.

I just sewed it on with a sewing machine. I was worried about washing and drying it but it looks fine!
