Lace Appliqué Overcast Stitch

Learn how they do it in the couture! This lesson will teach you how to extract a motif from lace yardage and then, how to appliqué that motif onto another fabric of your choice, using an overcast stitch. Use this technique to create extracts for sleeves, hems or any other area of a garment. You will also learn how to use specific tools for cutting the lace, as well as why you would choose an overcast stitch instead of a blanket stitch when appliquéing lace. This technique is most often used in bridalwear, eveningwear and in expensive lingerie.
