Wow, great find! I like your edits…do you think removing the lace from the bustline will leave any noticeable seamlines? Very feminine and totally unique 🙂

@stateline: You perfectly articulated my concern…I hope it works, the changes would make it fresh and modern, so pretty 🙂

you could probably use the lace from the sleeves for the caps if your afraid of pucker marks near the boobs.

@stateline: That is too bad. Maybe after you see it on your sister, you will think of something else to do with it. There should be at least a 5/8″ seam allowance at each seam though, so you might see if you can still alter it.

You could make it into a baby doll type top to wear with jeans and/or shorts, if the hem can’t be let out enough.
