Silk and Lace

This men's XL 100% silk shirt came home with me from a clothes swap a couple years and has been hanging in my refashion closet ever since. With the addition of a little lace, I finally found inspiration for what to do with it!

I cut off the sleeves and collar and added a lace insert in the back. A huge pleat at the bottom of the lace soaked up a lot of the extra fabric.

Oh I love the lace idea and that it is an interesting shape to the lace. Had you thought to bring just a bit of lace to the front to round off the whole design? Sandy in the UK
