Today’s tutorial, DIY EMILIO PUCCI Lace Tops was inspired by one of my favorite Summer collections of all time. I will show you a beginner level how to remove the front of your top and replace it with lace or crochet. Where you place the new see through panel is up to you. I have seen tons of tops with the whole back removed and replaced with crochet, looks fabulous. You can use my same technique to achieve this look.


Here is an example of what I am talking about.



Flipping through old fashion magazines is a great way to get inspired. Here is a sneak peak at the RUNWAY look inspired by Emilio Pucci Gypsy Runway Collection from 2012 and the MY WAY right next to it:) Not bad, right?


Gypsy/boho style never get old. Each year designers find a new way to reinvent gypsy style and each year it is better than the last.

Lots of options and inspiration from this collection! I wanted to design a look that was more street friendly and  attainable for everyone, so I kept it a little more conservative.


Materials needed:

Top of choice, 1 yard of wide lace trim, stick pins, needle&thread or fabric glue


12″ suede cord , 2 jump rings, pliers, pendant of choice

*I got the skirt at Ross and instead of leaving the top longer, I used the extra lace to tie around my high waist and then I untucked the top slightly. You can see the bow in the back. This way you have option to wear it long or short.
