Fabric Love: Eyelet

Last night as I was wrapping up the day at Sew L.A. I was chatting with Rebecca, one of our teachers, and Alison, one of our students, about our love of eyelet. I love it! I know it can border on little girl, but I see it more as naughty than sweet. Not sure what that says about me. Moving on...

If you saw the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer collection this year, you saw a LOT of eyelet. Beyond that, there are a lot of other sources of inspiration. Some more old-fashioned, some really sexy, and everything in between.

What do you all think? Do you wear eyelet? If not, would you? I made one of the dresses in my book in black eyelet, and it felt like the perfect mix of sweet and saucy. And hey, if you don't find it in the color you want, dye it! Scroll down for a gallery of inspiration!
