Before:


After:



And heres one Im working on now. (well Im always working on stuff LOL)
Ok I want to know first do you think I should run the lace all the way down the front or just to the top of the pocket line? (shoulda took a pic) And do you prefer it with or without the bias tape at the neck? Im going for a Mod look here.

Before: You can barely tell there are pockets



option 1


option 2 with bias tape on neckline:




Thanks for your input!!!

I like the bias tape, it makes it look more polished. Wink

I like the bias tape - if it matches the pockets?  I can't tell in the pic.

the bias tape  makes it more mod. the problem I am having is with the lace. I think a solid white stripe down the center would tie the binding and pocets together and might be a little more mod than lace.

I like the bias tape at the neckline , what about also putting the blue biastape on the top of the pockets that would tie it all together Smiley

Awesome Pink Floyd shirt.
I think I like the dress better with the bias tape (like TastyMagic said, it looks more mod), especially if it matches the pockets, but I'm not so sure about the lace.  It's pretty, but I don't think it fits the mod feel.  Maybe a strip of solid white or some other color would work better?

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

If by Mod you're thinking along these lines:
 


Then I say:
bias tape around neck? Definitely; keep pockets black with bias tape across top of each; I agree with radiationbaby, swap out lace for solid fabric, perhaps some wider single fold bias tape? and maybe add a strip horizontally under the bust, too. Make sure to hem it a few inches above the knee.

How fun just to sit here spouting off opinions  Wink
Thanks for asking...we'll be watching!

Everything's fantastic, the Dark Side of the Moon dress is AWESOME! Was it a huge tee, like xxl or just a medium or what?

Hmm I like option two, but I'm concerned about the blue detail on the top being too random compared to the black and white theme constant throughout...Maybe add blue bows on the top of the pockets or blue buttons, or get white bias tape instead? Just some thoughts...
