Start of a Lace Sweater

lace sweater

I found this blue lace a few months ago at DI (a local thrift store) and have been trying to figure out what to do with it ever since.   I think it is going to become a summer type cover up to go with t-shirts and blue jeans.  The lace is just thread that has been stitched in place.  But I plan on crocheting or knitting sleeves and a bottom.  Haven't decided yet it will have all three rows of lace at the yoke or if I will move some to the sleeves or hem of it yet.  I am leaning to moving it.  I think it could be pretty if it come out the way it sort of is in my head.  the reason I say sort of is because I have about 4 ideas mixing around in there and have not pinned it down as of yet.  This lace cost all of $1.00 so not to stressful if it doesn't work.  But I hope it does all the same.

In this photo you can see the fagoting to hold the strips together I am doing with a little bit lighter blue thread.

This shows the third row of lace that I am thinking of un-pinning and moving someplace else on the sweater.

The very top photo shows all three rows of lace.  The bottom one being the one I am thinking about moving.  As you can see I have just cut the lace.  I will sew along the edge and probably place seam binding there but it will also either have a knit or crochet button band to hid this and to make a finished closure.

So should I leave the sweater as laid out or move the bottom to the hem or cuffs.

  1. I think this will be a cute covering for a t-shirt! If you move the bottom row of lace to the hem, it will tie whatever else you do back in with the top, imho.

    I got a crocheted, long-sleeve cover like this a good dozen years ago--very versatile and fun!
