Loops and Eyelets

Bought this gorg peach lace a few days ago and needed to cut it up right away!
I haven't used lace in a while, so I thought, what better way to utilise this timeless fabric into a semi bare back, semi sheer top

The eyelets were a pain in the ass but definitely worth it. I love the cut - just hoping I won't get putrid tan lines from this..

Ciao guyz x

ps; might bump into some of you at parklife!!!

Can you seriously just like move into my house and be my friend please please PLEASE?!?!

You never fail to amaze me with your insane crafty DIY-goddess skillness.
Peach lace as a semi back baring sheer top? YUMMY.
To say that I want that right now would be a gross understatement. I need that goodness!
The swirly lacey pattern, the cool hemline, the wicked back baring corsety laced eyelets.

So, when you're famous someday as an epic fashion designer, I'm going to be able to say that I saw some of your early designs. I'll be like "Gurl, you just found out about Vanessa? Get with the program! I've known about her since 2012. That's back in them days of peach lace corset backed semi sheer tops."
Yup. True story.

You are amazing and I love you Vanessa!
Of course, I do profess my love in the manner that is least creepy coming from an internet stranger.
How about I reword that to make it less fear-inducing.
Vanessa, your DIY skills are rad to the point of being bad (which is a good thing!). You keep rocking girl!!
