My Creative Space - Tulle Top



Oops... I just realised it's My Creative Space day. I really don't want to go into all the disparate chaotic threads I'm currently tangling (it's just too messy around here people!). So, maybe a bit of sewing will suffice? I made this top a couple of months ago. Since then I've made another for a friend that was finished off with far greater skill... isn't it funny how you go that extra mile when making for someone else? And I've just received a request from another friend just this week for me to make her one too, so I'm hoping it's good enough to show here ;) The top bodice is black tulle with hand-sewn lace bits and the lovely loose lower part is a fabulous brush strokes pattern jersey I found at a closing down sale. Happy Creative Space Day everyone! What have you got cooking? :)

Kylie, I always catch your posts just before I go to bed (very late I must confess). I admire your creativity and enthusiasm everyday. Your posts are always so inspiring!

Oh, my, I admire your tulle/lace abilities. It scares me to think of sewing something like that, probably because I've never tried it. ;)

Nicola said...

You can sew so well! Too bad you live so far away or yu could teach me! :) I'd love to learn! Looking great, Kylie! :)

Wow... your top is amazing. You can see how soft it is in the photo. And it must feel great to have people ask you to make one for them.
