Eyelet Lace

This is another of the pieces I picked up in the bag sale recently, and was therefore only $.27. :) It's an eyelet lace skirt with lining, by GAP, and being 100% cotton is a perfect summer piece. But I don't wear white skirts, or even this style of skirt...they're just not my thing. But the beautiful eyelet lace is what this piece is all about.

I used another top as a template and transformed this skirt into something I'll be wearing for years to come! Stop by my blog to check out the process, how I got two pieces from one, and a closer look at how I finished off the arms (tried out a new decorative stitch!) :).

Hope you like this update, it's definitely one that can be repeated with many types of skirts for very different effects! Happy Refashioning :)

Peace,
Andrea

The skirt was pretty but not my thing either. I love the refashion into a beautiful top. It is soft and feminine and looks so pretty on. Beautiful work.

White skirts are very 10 yrs ago! It's pretty as a blouse and matches everything, a well done!
