First, thank you so much for the lovely comments about the passing of my kitty.
I have really loved the lace trend that has been everywhere this past year so I decided that I needed a simple lace top to include in some outfits.
The pattern I used was V1013. I eliminated the sleeves and added a lining. The lining method I used was to stitch the neck and stitch the armholes. Then, pull it through the shoulders and turn it right side out. At that point, the side seams of the top and lining were stitched with one continuous seam. I hope that made sense. Here is a tutorial I found on another blog.
The lace fabric which was previously used here and here came from Moodfabrics.com.
I am always afraid of not ordering enough fabric so I usually end up purchasing more than I need. The amount I purchased has certainly served me well having been used in two dresses and now a top. The lining is a beige polyester I had in my stash. I did a simple opening at the back of the neck and tied it with ribbon.
There is not much to say about this pattern except that it was very simple, especially with my modifications. Here is how I wore it. I see it working well with several different outfits.
Cardigan: JCrew Jackie in Burgundy
Polka Dot Mint Jeans: Old Navy
