Guipure trim is a strip of guipure lace commonly used to embellish different parts of dresses, skirts, jackets, trousers, etc. Highly feminine, it usually features a raised floral pattern, which elements are interconnected with tiny bars or plaits.
Guipure trims come in various designs. Besides classical floral or botanical motifs, you can often see geometrical shapes and abstract elements, dainty scallops, represented in a wide colour palette and in different widths.

Lace trim is a small yet very efficient lace detail that lends your dress a delicate feminine touch. It can feature the classic Chantilly floral pattern, a soutache cord, a guipure or macrame weave, the Lyon lace or pleated designs. It can be made of silk or cotton, embroidered with bugles, pearls, silver beads, and Swarovski rhinestones. The options are endless.
As you can guess even based on the current page selection, lace trims vary in width a lot. The narrow ones can be straight or scalloped. Both are used for decorating dress and skirt hems, but scalloped guipure trims can also be applied to underwear and lingerie. With the use of wider trims (10 cm and more), you can create amazing inserts on the waist, sleeves or back of your dress.
In many respects, lace trim is timeless. Whatever trendy design, colour or material you choose, it will always convey that mood of romanticism many of us unconsciously tend to link with the elegance of the past epoche. And that's what we all love lace trims for.
