Lace and netting

Last month I jumped into pretty sewing and made this lace cover jacket, Kwik Sew 3693 View A, for Mum. She has a fuller chest so the front folds sit nicely on her.

This colour goes with the rest of the clothes I’ve made her in light neutral colours. All of the seams are overlocked so this can be hand washed or put in the machine for a quick cool wash and there’s no need to iron it either.

The back shoulder width is good but I’ll need to bring the sleeves higher at the front on her next version.

She was happy with this version and she said it’s a bit airy, meaning cool to wear in the cold. When I mentioned this was a pretty piece to wear inside, she was happy with that explanation and kept it on.
 

The piece below is a shorter, neater version for moi but it suits Mum better.

This version needs some shaping in the back but I’ve been using this version as a layer to wear in the office for colour.

Back to study.
