I made this fascinator using some wire and some parts of a lace catsuit that I cut the legs off to use it as a shirt (I couldn't find any nice and affordable lace shirts, but the catsuit was only 2... funny, actually)





I simply bent the wire into a butterfly shape, put it between two layers of the net/lace fabrics and sewed the fabric to the wire while stretching it a bit. Then I cut all the leftover fabric away - done  Grin

I've made a similar one a few months ago, using normal blkac tights and some melted/burned organza:

A brilliant idea. I think I like your more recent on better, but I can really see so many places I could wear the other one, so I guess I'm torn!

Ooh, pretty!  I like both.  They're so similar, but so different.  They're awesome!

This is such a neat use of wire and fabrics together.  I'm definitely inspired, thank you for sharing!
