How fun is this? Great idea Karla! I dug into my many boxes of pretty's, so hard to decide which one's to use, I finally just closed my eye and grabbed some. I have many antique lace and linen pieces. This is one of my favorites. I used 5 different lace's to make this jacket. I think I could also use it as a top or leave open for a shirt.
I sewed on some of my best antique mother of pearl buttons, the big ones in the front and the little, baby buttons on the back with a silk ribbon. I also wove some ribbon through the opens spaces on the top and bottom edge of the sleeves. I think this will work great in the summer with a tank top under.
