So I decided to use Stash fabric for this project. I had some pretty medium weight silver satin and some dark grey embellished net.
I thought serging the net would be a great way to hem it, and it was until I got to the curved armholes...
I also wanted a hat... a summery lace covered wire style. I saw many in museum archives and decided to give it a go after beefing up on what to do over at Gina's blog
I added more wire after I took that photo because even though I covered it with a plain net base before I aded the lace, the fabric drooped through the openings too much.
There, that's better!
Even though I was wearing a sleeveless sundress with a hoop keeping the fabric away from my legs, people asked me, "Are you hot in that?"

Judy found us the sunglasses over at Urban Outfitters last year, and they are no longer available. However, they frequently have great vintage-looking styles, so keep an eye out!
