Hello, sweet thing! You are the prettiest wool I've ever seen, yes you are! Who's a pretty girl? Who's a pretty girl? That's right... You! I've been dying to find the perfect lace to an overlay with, and there you were yesterday, just sitting on the shelf at Haberman's, waiting for me to take you home! You and your ivory wool already fused with a cotton lace, just to make my life easier, too! Did I take the lime green underlay? No, ma'am! I took the ivory and black, for a classic color combo. Thankfully you were on sale too, but with my birthday money burning a hole in my pocket, I probably would've bought you anyway! A yard and a half of 60" wide could be lots of things, so please tell me... Whisper it in my ear. Do you want to be a skirt?
Kind of boring, but very useful. Maybe. How about a jacket? A nice Chanel number with some pretty black lace and trim along the edges?
Ooh... Now, you're talking! Mommy likey that look! Or perhaps a simple, but elegant sheath dress?
Easy to dress up with jewelry for a night on the town, or dressed down with a black cardi for work. I did buy some of that black wool cashmere yesterday, too for a nice simple jacket that would match!
What to do, what to do with a fabric like you? The extra lace hanging loose along your selvages are screaming to be put to good use, which just makes my wheels spin more...
Being a mid-weight slightly heavier than a suiting, I can do any of these pieces. The skirt seems like a waste, in my opinion you're just to pretty to get noticed more! I really like the idea of edging you in bias strips of black organza with a pretty braided trim centered inside for the prettiest Chanel jacket! Then again, you are so very similar to the awesome lace overlay dresses that Kate Middleton wears, that I feel the urge to go in that direction, feeling like a Duchess myself! Decisions, decisions... What does my readership think? Skirt, jacket, or dress???
