lace insert tutorial

It's been a long time. I've been having computer troubles. >:( Oh well...Anyway, I've finally made a tutorial for you guys! I think you'll like this one because you could use basically any lightweight woven for the main body. I have it here in a crazy vintage fabric that I rescued from the reject pile. What you need is a piece of fabric that when folded is half your bust plus 10-12" wide and the length of which is what you want the finished length of the top to be, plus 1.5" for shoulder seams and hem. I have my piece sideways as you can see, which doesn't matter as long as patterns go the right direction. you need two measurements: Half your bust, and the length from the shoulder to the underarm.

It pushed me over the edge :). Sure – the purse in question was only around $30 from JCPenny, but what fun is there in that?! And who doesn’t want a big, huge bow on the front of their purse?!! It says I am fun and flirty, and don’t care who knows it! Lol, well, at least that’s what it says to me :). Thanks to Google, I was able to find a great tutorial for making metal frame purses.
