Pattern: MayMe Style of Sewing (Sewing Pochee Special), Pattern number 4
Size: One size only
This is the first pattern I have sewn from this May Me book. When I first saw the pattern in the book, I wasn’t impressed by it at all, but I was drawn to it after seeing Anna's version. My weather is perpetually sunny and I was thinking of making it in knit cotton jersey. Then I remembered my lace fabric leftover from a door curtain and refashioning my daughter’s dress with a lace heart. And guess what, the leftover was exactly enough. I had only teeny bits of scrap left after cutting. Whoohoo, I love it when I use up every inch of fabric.
I really like this lace shrug, but I have some difficulty wearing it with my clothes, nothing seems suitable. I think it needs to be paired with a simple light pastel dress. Alas, I hardly wear dresses and so for these pics, I wore it with my beige tunic to show you the lace shrug. But I think it will look much better worn with a floaty, creamy linen dress, which, sadly, I do not have. All the more excuse to sew one right?
