Thank you for your feedback on the various jackets and the laces. Your opinions are helpful.
In addition to lace, I am looking around for style inspiration. Here is a beauty:
I found it on Lyst, click here. And have you heard of Pinterest? It is a website where you create inspiration boards of images found online. When you sign up, and follow the instructions, you wind up with a little button in your toolbar. When you see an image you like, just click the "Pin It" icon and select the image to bookmark. What's nice is that it retains the link and other information you'd like to save. Here is a link to my collection of ideas for lace jackets.
There are some hand knitted sweaters in there, but that would be too straight forward, wouldn't it?!
No, no knitting... I want to search for a woven lace and line it with silk, preferably using new-to-me techniques. Otherwise, what's the point?
Am I right?
