How To DIY Bridal Lace Blouse "Illuminate in Opal"

I decided to postpone this post until now for various reasons and one of them being the weather. Although lace is one of those delicate fabrics often used for special occasions, i decided to show how a wedding vest can be transformed and worn differently using lace and tulle. In fact lace and tulle can look casual/cool when mixed to match with everyday essentials being jeans, skirts, jackets and shorts. 

Even if the lace/tulle is white, it doesn't need to be reserved for just a special occasion. It's one of those ideal materials to wear when the sun pops out because it can be cooling and can sometimes give the illusion of bare but not! That's where this classic cut vest blouse comes into play 'Opal'. 

Created using tulle and motif pieces (embroidery lace, sequences and pearl beads) i decided to expand my creativity to interweaving the fabrics together. One could consider layering for speed but i knew i would get a better effect with this method. Plus it was fun :) I must warn that these materials are fragile so be sure to double up when creating your own.

Check out the Alero Collections store for the basic (goodies) materials here: - fab price offers!

Opal is definitely one of those pieces one can create a layered look with. Wear it with a vest top, bodice top or dress to create different looks for day and evening wear too. Below is the conceptual sketch illustration and blue-print to replicate your own. It isn't drawn to scale but the shapes are there to assist.

Have lots of fun with this, peace x
