Stretch Lace for Creative Sewing Fun

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

STRETCH LACE on display at JoAnn’s Fabrics today made my creative heart go ‘pitter patter’.  

Tis a good thing I was ‘on a mission’ and on my way OUT of the store, or a cut of the aqua bolt would likely have come home to ‘age’ in my stash – AND it was 30% off of $21.99!  Why did these tempt me?  Feast your eyes – then read my ideas below…

  1.  Full T-Shirt or Tunic Top.  Feminine, indeed – so how about scooping out the shoulder for the ‘naked shoulder look that remains popular this year.  See my post on Naked Shoulders HERE.

  2. To line a lace top with shape and style  – check out how I did that for my daughter at THIS POST. 

  3. How about a soft, flirty sleeve like the Angel Sleeve as I teach you how to draft in my Captivating Cowls Pattern...(see the periwinkle top) below.
