We have been getting rid of a lot of "stuff" from our home lately, and one of the things that I have been doing is going through my wardrobe. I found lots of things that were too old, too small, too worn, or that are just not flattering. I also seem to have lots that is not really my style. Recently, I got a couple new dresses and a top from a company called "Angie" which has a bohemian vibe that suits me perfectly.
When I saw a request from Winter Wear Designs for the Amuse Boho Homecoming Tour, I knew I wanted to participate!
I get fabric from thrift stores on occasion, and while I was there, I saw a stack of doilies that I thought would be a perfect detail to use for the front panel of the Amuse, to add to the bohemian vibe of my dress.
This is what I started with.
I cut out the front panel from the pattern and laid it over my doily, which was a little challenging because this particular doily does not lay flat!
Pin it, and stitch all the way around. I used pink thread
This is what it looks like on the other side sewn.
Cut it out:
Use it as the outer fabric for the front panel
And here is what it looks like finished! Not bad for $1 worth of materials!
This pattern is on sale through the 14th! Get your Amuse Boho here and use code "AMUSEME" to get 20% off! There are lots of options - optional back yoke, 2 sleeve lengths, 3 dress lengths, top and tunic lengths, and a straight or shirttail hem for all! Best yet its super comfy for hot Florida summer.
