I wanted to use the 1 metre of stripey lace from my stash and am pleased with how it turned out, especially the pocket which is hard to spot, am I right? The stripes matched up on the side fairly well too.
The next top was made of thicker knit which wasn't ideal as the hem is a bit wavy and heavy. I finished the hems with bias tape which maybe was the cause.
Stay tuned for my next version which was inspired by a shirt from Anthropologie.
