I took all sorts of lovely photos of my process in creating this sweatshirt, but I can't get them right now due to technical difficulties. It is easy enough to imagine, though. I snipped out the front panel - removing the giant IZOD logo - inside the side seams, below the neckband, and above the waistband. I used this piece as a guideline to cut out my lace piece, cutting about 2 inches around the sweatshirt fabric. I pinned it in place on the inside of the sweatshirt and stitched it along the existing seam lines. Here's how it turned out.
And a close-up...
I love the contrast with a crisp white shirt, but I am also looking forward to styling it in other ways. It is comfy and pretty warm still but much more stylish.
