Stunning cobalt blue baroque motif lace on black mesh has beautifully finished scalloped edges on both selvedges for numerous design possibilities. This lace will layer beautifully over blue or black solid colors. Crosswise stretch. Use in a single layer for a simple top or T and wear a cami underneath, or make a fabulous dress or skirt and line. I use these sheers for sleeves, edgings and trims, and they make a great little shrug too. Perfect for the little cardi in Marcy's new dress+cardi pattern: Vogue 9358, or Vogue 8975 or for the cardi in Marcy's 'block' dress design, Vogue 9081, or for a simple little T-shirt as used in Vogue 9057, view A.
Pre-treat by wash/dry gentle. Always test before putting in the dryer.
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
Pre-treat by hand launder and air dry, and do the same after sewing.
