Vintage Lace Ruched Band

This summer Tabula Rasa Jacket prominently features a piece of vintage lace from Rae’s stash on the front band an cuffs. The body of the jacket is a floral print lawn from Farmhouse Fabrics. The lace is laid over a strip of cotton batik to give it more presence (and a little modesty at the center front). The band is ruched, or gathered, at several points and held in place with lawn tubing and decorative buttons. Find directions for a ruched band in Band Variations for the Tabula Rasa Jacket. Read the construction details in Rae’s thorough blog post Vintage Lace Ruched Top.
