Music Video Wraps in Lace: meeting the modesty challenge at short notice

That feeling when you have to produce a new outfit in a hurry, and you know your closet is going to come up short...

Something you've experienced? I spent this weekend making a musical sentiment video as a gift for a friend (think electronic greeting card but in the form of a video on youtube), and part way through the project realized I needed a "me" face for the final photo plate. Hmmm. What do I have in my Spring-oriented closet that would coordinate with the white/ivory/brown palette of the video?

A search revealed one sleeveless dress short of a top. A knit tee shirt just wasn't right for this project.

Enter creativity.

Add an hour, plus a remnant of ivory guipure lace measuring 74x106cm. Pinning and re-pinning. A stitch here and there. Voila. Dainty lace wrap to go over sleeveless dress. Pretty and modest. Closet challenge resolved!

Here's the "face plate".


And here's the finished music video.
