Lovely and exceptional black lace is composed of thin strips of net stitched together in a grid with flowers. Transparent, thin, lightweight and stable with a lightly textured hand and lightly crisp drape. Use as an overlay for a simple top or dress or in a single layer for a striking jacket, shrug, vest, wrap or coat.

Stitching over the open spaces in lace and mesh could cause problems. Totally Stable to the rescue.
    •    While you can use tissue paper or even computer paper, Totally Stable works like a charm because it is designed as a tear-away for machine embroiderers. It is a fusible too, but I ignore that entirely.
    •    One side has a light fusible and is slightly shiny, the other is matte. It comes in white and black. (On a side note, this works beautifully on knits to prevent waffling and rippling).
    •    It does not matter which side is up. I cut a batch into 1" strips, place on top of the area to be sewn and stitch away. On a long seam, just overlap the strips.
    •    Even works on curves. Curve or cut in sections to fit as Totally Stable is soft and a bit malleable.
    •    It tears away easily, does not get caught in the stitching, even tiny stitches, it sort of dissolves. If some remains in the stitches it is easy to pull out, which is not the case with other papers like computer paper or tissue paper
Limited quantity available.

Pre-treat by machine wash gentle and air dry, and do the same after sewing.
