I recently took a trip to Spotlight (Fabric store), and picked up some lace in an off green colour that was on special. I knew I would not use the colour for any garments, however I had the idea to dye the fabric black using Rit dye. I spent all week dying about 5 meters of lace, stirring every 30 minutes or so, and leaving it in for about 2-3 days. After washing the dye out with cold water, the black lace was a success and there was no sign of it ever being another colour. I am now a big fan of dye and will be dying a lot of things from now on !

Spent today making tops out of the lace and a patterned material I found in my fabric box. These tops will be my go-to-tops this season, as prints and lace will be forever trending.

OMG you made these?! they look sooo amazing!!
I wish i could sew like you!
Hmm i think they both have their levels of comfort the quiet riot ones are abit more wide in comparison to the romwe ones which have a longer shape to the shoe. Both are comfortable :) you should get a pair theyre quite affordable compared to the Hellraisers by Unif.

<3 thanks for the advice love!
