Finalist in the Threads Fancy Fabrics Challenge

My entry was selected as a finalist in the Threads Magazine Fancy Fabrics Challenge. Please visit http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/35158/vote-for-the-winner-of-the-2013-fancy-fabrics-challenge and vote. The garment I entered was a modification of an Alexander McQueen top.

Back view. Notice the lace pattern is a mirror image on the right and left sides. This was a design element in many of Mcqueen’s designs.

The lace was backed with silk tulle and additional embellishment of crystals on the lace were added.

    I voted for you. This top is gorgeous and shows off some serious sewing skills. You should have won. The winning dress is very nice, but this top required more skills.
