Lace Overlap Seam

Lace Overlap Seam

This couture lesson, used in bridalwear, eveningwear and expensive lingerie, will teach you how to create a seamless lace seam, which is the difference between a beautifully constructed lace garment and a cheap imitation. You will be able to apply this technique to darts and other areas of a lace garment to reduce bulk and so that your lace motif remains intact.

This lesson will also teach you how to use your tools, how to cut your lace and the correct hand stitching technique to use when sewing lace.

If you love working with lace, why not try our Lace Appliqué Blanketstitch lesson and our Lace Appliqué Overcast lesson.
