Doily Inspiration

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Inspired by the following fashion items which can be replicated with some thrifted doilies and a little sewing/crafting:

1. Doily Hemmed Jacket

 :: Image c/o fashionrefashiontumblr ::

How: Sew doilies to the inside of your (or a thrifted) jacket sleeves and bottom hemline

2. Crochet/doily back top

:: Image c/o libbystory ::

How: Cut open the back of an existing or thrifted top, replace with doilies, sew back together.

3. Doily Shoes

:: Image c/o lifolo::

How: Find black doilies (or dye white doilies black) and mod podge onto a pair of existing, or thrifted white shoes

4. Doily Masquerade Mask

:: Image c/o katjaanderson ::

How: Cut out doily to mask shape, coat with lacquer or glue to make firmer, stick diamante's in place, elastic to tie on each side.

Readers, do you have any more links? Have you made any DIY doily fashion creations?

Great ideas! I did a Miss Sew & Sew for Peppermint a while back where I attached semi-circles of doily as cap sleeves on a singlet.

lovely photos Erica, some great ideas there. I saw a little girls dress with an embroidered doiley with crochet edges as a pocket. Also a small crochet doily just stitched at random on a denim skirt looks good.

Oh. My. Gosh.
I adore lace and doilies, so these are some Fantastic ideas! I think I might have to borrow some of these. I especially like the first one, of the lace peeping out under the jacket hem and sleeve edge...
Thank you so much for these inspirational shots! (and also for your kind words today)
