I will be adding alencon lace to my wedding dress. It will be added as appliques at the bodice, and also entirely around the hem of the dress. What is the best way to sew this on? I was going to hand sew it all, but I am wondering if a small machine stitch can be used and will barely even show. If you don’t recommend a small machine stitch, then would I just tack it in places? or should I entirely hand sew every edge of it?
Unfortunately I have a very basic sewing machine. The dress is matte satin. I believe there is some way to release the “teeth” that feed the fabric through in a straight line, and then I can manuver the lace around without going in a straight line? What is your advice on this.
Thank you all for your advice. I definitely need it. 🙂
