100 followers giveaway: vintage lace!

Yay, I have 100 followers! Thank you so much, dear readers. I enjoy your feedback as much as the process of writing and sewing!

Now, following the best traditions of sewing blogs I am hosting a giveaway - and the prize is ... a set of three bands of beautiful vintage lace. 

I thought it would be so timely for this season - lacework and embroidery is everywhere. Paired with white, it makes a perfect summer piece. You can make a top, a dress, a pair of shorts, or use it as a detail on a light summer jacket. Imagine it with denim, for example... 








Each of these pieces is almost 1.5 yard long and, with some luck, this beauty may belong to you.

You can enter the giveaway by leaving a comment under this post. The giveaway is open to existing or new followers anywhere in the world.  I would also love to hear what you would want to make with the lace, but this is not a pre-condition for joining the giveaway. So, good luck and enjoy some inspiration from the runways, below:

... and here are some styling tips from the UK edition of  Harper's Bazaar (June 2011):

  • accessorize with hippie-inspired pieces or a stack of bold silver bangles or layered necklaces
  • pair white flared jeans with an embroidered waistcoat
  • add some warmth to your look with natural-hued accessories




I forgot to add, post comments by Sunday, June 12th - the winner, which will be drawn randomly, will be announced on Monday, June 13th!
