Sewing Delicate Insertion Lace!

Lauren at Wearing History wrote a tutorial on preparing, designing, and machine sewing insertion lace onto garments. As she points out, delicate heirloom insertion lace is a delectable addition to Edwardian garments and undergarments. Prepare for the romance of the first days of spring by sewing a waft of a slip, or snappy tap panties with heirloom lace and silk chiffon (sheer silk on sale until 1/31/13) from Britex Fabrics.
