Embellishments: Dimensional Lace

Threads #202, April/May 2019

Layer dimensional appliqués, made from freestanding embroidery designs, on top of a machine-embroidered lace motif stitched on a sheer fabric to create this stunning 3-D effect. When you make your own lace, you have an unlimited combination of colors and styles to choose from, so you can create an embellishment that coordinates with your fashion fabric perfectly. Purchased lace can be expensive, and purchased lace with dimensional appliqué is even more so. Not only is this technique customizable to your taste and style, it won’t break the bank. Use this technique to create statement sleeves, as in the sample, or a stunning illusion neckline or lace skirt overlay. You are limited only by the embroidery capabilities of your machine. Let’s take a look at how to make your own appliqué-embellished lace. If you don’t have an embroidery machine, I’ll explain how to achieve the effect with purchased lace and trim.
