Lace has a disputable origin since it evolved from other techniques. This beautiful openwork can be either English or French legacy. Even if it was Italian, the world would love it just as much. Handcrafted and machine-made, it was widespread in Europe by the 16-th century. Lace is named after the Latin word laqueus, which means “noose”. Equally valued by the early Catholic Church clergy and city fashionistas, this fabric has a number of production techniques
These days not all these varieties are widespread. Different kinds of lace keep falling in and out of fashion, but some are here to stay. When it comes to high-quality dress material, corded lace is one of the most popular choices both for evening dresses and day dresses – all because of its look, feel and hand.
Lace, as well as many other fabrics, has its underlying potential problems when it comes to sewing. Due to its gossamer-like structure, this fabric can be a real challenge for those who have just started their sewing lessons. There are several tips that can help you turn this embroidered lace into a beautiful piece of clothing.
1. Mind the side. Sometimes lace looks the same on both sides, but in most cases, they differ. One should mind the face side, especially while working with multiple lengths of lace fabric. It’s a good idea to use stickers or removable tailor’s chalk to indicate it.
2. Symmetry is key. While designing the dress, consider the ornament direction and place the fabric accordingly. Estimate the length of the dress so as to place scallops symmetrically
3. Always prepare your fabric before cutting. Steam ironing might work for cotton lace, but it all depends on the type of fabrics – mostly only dry-cleaning is allowed. The best strategy is to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.
4. If you need to secure your fabric, opt for fine and sharp silk pins. You may also use weights to keep it in place.
5. Sharp scissors are a key to success. We recommend using special scissors or a rotary cutter for cutting lace. Use tone-on-tone thread to avoid the contrast with delicate lace fabric. Viscose thread and thin needle are essential for handworks and beadworks.
6. Overlap two pieces of lace to hide your seam. Carefully match the basting marks between the two pieces. It depends on the motif, but sew the new seam as close to your basted line as you can. Trim away excess at the overlap edges. You can pin and baste around the lapped seam and test until you're satisfied with how it looks.
7. Pressing is quite tricky, too. Before pressing, cover lace fabric with some kind of protection, like a thick cotton towel. Or, you could also use a special iron shoe.
