Doilies invade Lexington Ave.?

This is a photo of the shirt featured on the designer responsible for the recent updates to The Lexington Ave. Hotel in NYC (embarrassingly, I didn’t jot down her name – my apologies to her, and to you). Her renovations are featured in a magazine provided by the hotel my husband and I stayed in last night.

Doilies hit the big time – note too that her re-worked T-shirt was cut in the back to allow for a ‘dropped stitches’ knitting technique to be applied. It looks simply lace-like here. Also, interesting to see  a piece of clothing with such a DIY aesthetic chosen  by a designer for a high-end magazine shoot.

Score another point for perceived value regarding the ‘handmade’.
