I decided to make a flower brooch out of black lace and add it to my newly completed waistcoat.
I've also added some lace at the shoulders, they're sort of peeping :-) Do you like it?
The brooch is made of black lace. I used about 2m of it. Basically, I took the lace and went round in circles until I got a rose like shape. It was then sewn onto a piece of scrap material (preferably T-shirt material of the same colour)
With the remaining lace I did a running stich and bunched it up together. This formed the "leafy" bits of the rose.
The leafy bit is at the top left handside of the pic. I added a white button in the middle and glued a pin at the back so that I can wear it with my other clothes.
