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.

  1. I absolutely love this blouse.

    I’m off to give you a vote!

    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.


    • Thanks for the vote and recognizing the work that went into this. Factors other than design and sewing skills may have been considered when people voted. I hope you follow me and enjoy the projects I post.


  3. Fabulous reinterpretation! I recognized the inspiration immediately. Just my cup of tea 🙂
