Creative Mending

I picked this fun, drape-y top up at Marshall's a while back for a couple of bucks. It was marked way, way down because it had a hole . . . right, smack-dab, in the front.

I wasn't quite sure how to fix it so it sat in my to-be-mended pile for a while. Because of the location of the hole, I couldn't just darn it shut. So finally I decided I would have to cover it up with something. I pulled out a square piece of lace, sewed it on, trimmed along the neckline, and now. . .

. . . totally invisible hole!


  1. hi i think its great the way you put the lace like front and covered the hole, it blends all together like your blog gives this senior advice as i have too gals loving it i know for sure thanks for the site too

  2. I never would have guessed that it was a repair job. It looks like it was meant to be. Great look.

  3. I love what you did with this drapey top, looks great with the lace!
