DIY | VINTAGE LACE TABLECLOTH TOP





Lace is everywhere lately! I love it. Try this easy DIY to turn a family treasure into something beautiful you can wear.. or if you're like me and a little too sentimental to turn the scissors on something so special - pop into your local op-shop digs to find the perfect piece!

what you need
  • Vintage lace tablecloth (mine is from my local Op-shop and set me back $3)
  • Needle 
  • Thread
  • Scissors
how to 
  • Fold your lace in half longways and pin sides together
  • Measure and mark the armhole opening (mine is 15cm from shoulder)
  • Hand stitch the side seams, remembering to leave the armhole open
  • Carefully snip out an opening for the neckhole, following the pattern of your chosen lace piece (you'll see I've followed the line of the square pieces to create my neckline)
  • Hand stitch the neckhole seam, using the rolled hem technique
