OK, almost there. More leftovers from the Summer: Some themes & variations on the camisole I made earlier this year.
This time I will be charmeusing. And I want to finally use the gorgeous black lace I got from Pacific Trimming last year. I actually went back and got more, plus white version too. It’s tempting to put black lace on black charmeuse. But A) I haven’t got any. And B) that would make the lace disappear. And that would be a real shame. So I picked golden charmeuse to contrast with the black lace. I might use the white one with the baby blue charmeuse. (Both are from the Stash. So gold stars for me!) The inspiration is the same as for the camisole I made earlier – this Esty find that’s also demonstrated in Draping: The Complete Course. I’m playing around with a few variations to see what’d look good and stay on the shoulder.
I also want a matching slip for the golden + black lace combination. Hopefully it’ll look good both under other skirts as well as on its own.
Now if only London would heat up by the time I sew these…
