Layering is one of the best things, even in the summer. Often I’ll want to bring something with me when I go out in case the air conditioning is blasting. Plus, as September rolls nearer, I can never have too many shawls. And so, I made a new one! In under 15 minutes, too!
Since Mood put up this geometric lace I’ve been absolutely in love with it, so I knew right away what I’d be using for this project.
Since this lace had scalloped edges, I decided to use them for the sleeves. This meant folding the fabric in half, with the scallops on either side, and cutting up the center of the top layer to create the neckline/front opening. A simple rolled hem finished it perfectly.
To create “sleeves” I stitched about 2/3 up the sides, stopping roughly 10″ from the top fold. And just like that, I had a new shawl! 2 yards of Black Shell Fringe along the bottom brought the whole look together.
So what lace will you be using to try out this project?
