A Vintage Repair

I got out all my maternity clothes to see if there were any gaps that I need to fill for colder weather. Apparently you start to need maternity clothes a lot earlier in the third pregnancy!

While digging I found this knit tunic that is really comfy and a good in between shirt since it is longer and has an elastic gather at the waist. Unfortunately it had a big tear right in the front near the collar. After I mended it there was an unsightly scar that really made this cute top look messy. In order to camouflage the scar I sewed a vintage crochet lace around the collar. This lace was hand made by my husband’s late Grandmother and was given to me from her estate, very thoughtfully, because Rob’s family knows that I sew.

I am honored to reuse these vintage heirloom pieces in something I will wear everyday. I hope that was what Grandmother Brazier had intended when she crochet them so long ago.
