Lace dress (whether it is a wedding dress, evening dress or simply created by fashionistas for summer walks) is always festively elegant. At the same time, it is not difficult to sew from lace. This thin and delicate material is not at all whimsical, and even a beginning seamstress can cope with it.

- overlock;
- thread and needle;
- iron;
- knitted mesh.


Calculate the consumption of fabric according to the chosen style and pattern of the canvas. When cutting a dress it is important to show all the beauty of the lace pattern and emphasize the texture of the material.In this case, a large stock of tissue is not needed, since it is possible to arrange details of the cut on it in any way. The basis of the lace is a net (it will not crumble at cuts), therefore it is not necessary to look for a fractional thread.


Consult with the seller of the fabric store about the features of lace care. If only dry cleaning is recommended, then before sewing the lace dress, the cut can be simply gently ironed with a warm iron on the wrong side. When washing is permissible, the working cloth is soaked in warm water, dried and ironed.


Try to buy two lace cuts of different structure. Details of cut, fitting a figure, it is better to make of dense, convex, cloth. The main part of a dress of a simple silhouette will emphasize the beauty of the structural interweaving of threads. For flounces, wide skirts or puffy sleeves, it is recommended to choose a lighter, weightless lace. Edge with festoons will look good on the neck line or at the bottom of the skirt.


Sew a flesh-colored bottom dress or lining. Depending on your design idea, it can be solid, one tone with lace or a contrasting color.Pattern of the bottom dress can be made on the basis of a long knit shirt, circled around the contour.


Measure the ready (smetanny manually) case and specify the dimensions of the product, and only then cut out the lace details. Cutting them will only have to happen!


You can impose lace cut elements on the lining fabric, tacked by hand and immediately sew a two-layer dress.


If you are planning to wear a transparent dress over a combination, it is recommended to sew a sketch of a dress from a cheap material, and then, when sewing a lace product, orient on a pattern.


Handle side seams, neck, armholes. The cut-out line can be strengthened with a fixing strip of a knitted mesh (2 cm wide), bending its edges and stitching on a sewing machine. The rest of the seams on the lace dress should be done manually, on a typewriter or overlock: shoulder seams are recommended to be overlapped manually with short neat stitches; use overlock for handling allowances; a narrow wide seam will suit a wide thin panel; lace with a large pattern can be sewn with an overhead seam (the cut is closed); Lace sleeves are usually stitched with a narrow zigzag or two lines.


Design the bottom of the dress to your liking. If along the edge of the product there are festoons, or a pattern cut along the contour, then the finishing of the finished product can be completed with this. Stylists do not recommend overloading the lace outfit with decorative details. It is permissible to put a shuttlecock on the bottom of the skirt or to sew small lace patterns as appliques.

Pay attention when sewing a lace dress

Smooth the seam allowances extremely carefully. It is better to smooth the hem on especially delicate fabrics (such as synthetic lace) with a fingernail or a thimble.
