Pretty In Peach & Lace

Lace adds a touch of elegance to just about anything-- hence why I'm so obsessed. This top looked really simple, but it was a bit of a challenge to execute. I have been brainstorming a top like this for quite some time now. Thankfullyyyy, I realized to use my mannequin that I've had for almost a year which made making this top SOOO much easier. Unfortunately, since this peach lace top was a bit of a challenge I wasn't able to make a tutorial out of it, but I shall when I feel I'm capable to do so in my next designs.

In the meantime I want to show you lovelies my new top I made. I am so proud of myself and this is definitely one of my favorite tops I've made thus far.


My inspiration I found on Pinterest, of course. :)



I used some peach fabric from a pillow case and some lace from a window valance. As you can tell recycling materials is my favey!



My mannequin was truly a life saver because I was able to pin everything into place before sewing-- really what you're suppose to do, but I never really did. Haha. To each their own but honestly, I see why mannequins are so important when designing because it helps out with measurements which is something I have yet to master the skills.



Thee finished peach lace top! Front, back, and side views.




I spent about 3 days making this top and learning new things about sewing clothes along the way. Hopefully sometime soon I will understand more to be able to guide you through a tutorial.

I loooove how it turned out in the end-- surprisingly just what I envisioned. I paired this lovely peach lace top with light denim jeans from Forever 21 and taupe t-strap heels from JCPenney.







Very prim and proper, yes? :)
