Grey Top with Solid and Silver Lace Fabric
I was given this fabric and I loved the stretch and variated grey color. Perfect for an office blouse. The back has lace over a different grey fabric since I ran short. The edging of the lace was cut off and inserted as a collar trim and edging at the back. The lace was quilted on to the grey fabric with white vertical white thread that continued onto the solid grey. This picks up nicely the white colors of the grey. I love the detailing of this shirt. The top looks great with grey skirt or black leggings and/or a jacket. I enjoyed making the princess blouse with a dart. It adds another element, not often seen.

Beautiful top. Love the "surprise" back. Good job on enhancing the lace.
