Who says you need to use the same lace throughout on a garment? There is always something to be said about continuity, but flip that, and remember there is also something to be said about novelty as well. If you take a look at this flounce sleeve top you will see four different laces were used in its creation. An absolute favorite trim/treatment of Embellish is a tiny little understated lace or trim insertion like the one shown around the neckline. As we moved on to the flounces of the sleeves, we started to ever-so-slightly expand the width of lace. Layer number one is trimmed with a nice 3/8" lace. On the middle flounce we swapped colors and broadened the width a bit more. On the lowest flounce, the color shifts to a darker shade of taupe, and the lace expands to almost and inch wide. This decision was made keeping in mind, the weightiest lace both size and color, work well to anchors the bottom of the sleeve. Monochromatic and neutral tones work well on this blouse, but if you feel more adventurous, use three or four complimentary unique or contrasting colors together to create your one-of-a-kind garment. Oh, and the topstitching! We always encourage you to go ahead with the topstitching...on the tucks, seams, and everywhere.
