Moody Lace

Sadly, I fell victim last week to an email blast sent from MOOD.  It was an innocent enough suggestion to look at some new laces.  Laces?  I don’t have a clue how to sew with lace fabric.  But what could it hurt to take a gander?  6 swatches later, my checking account is wishing I had just deleted that email.

Behold:

Swatch #1 (FC3309) and Swatch #2 (FP22186C)

Swatch #3 (FC21709) and Swatch #4 (FS22611C)

Swatch #5 (FP22299C) and Swatch #6 (FP22208C)

The only one that is a little weird is #6, because it kind of had a 3D shaggy lace thing going on, but I still heart it big time.  I could buy all six of these, but really, I should not do this.

I’m thinking I will underline them to give them some structure, one in black and one in another color.  I also kind of want to make bodices out of some and then add plain skirts…Sigh.  Help me, internets!  Which are your favorites?

  1. Not a huge fan of #2 or #5–#5 looks like cobwebs to me for some reason. I think #1 and #6 are actually my favorites. I’ve always been a fan of (classy) black lace over peach fabric, but I could see some other colors working well too, depending the look you’re after.
