Turquoise Guipure Lace Short Sleeved Shirt

This amazing shirt made by Jane (for Lulu) was made with white cotton Guipure lace that was dyed turquoise (along with the cotton lawn lining and button-hole trim) with a Dylon machine dye. The front and back darts were appliqué seamed rather than sewn normally so are almost invisible.

Fabrics and Notions:

White cotton Guipure lace #2900
White ‘Riviera’ cotton lawn
Off white button-hole trim
Dylon turquoise dye
Turquoise shell buttons

Pattern: Altered from a Vintage Vogue Dress pattern V2960 (made up before here)
