For some time now, lace in a multitude of colors has been appearing on daywear, adding a fashion touch that’s feminine and fabulous. When you want a lightweight finished and lady-luxe edge, try lace. Here, we frame a sueded silk rectangle with lace to create an elegant scarf, but this same method would also look great on a skirt hem.
All this glamour is very easy to carry out. The fabric and lace you choose changes the way the finished scarf looks, but the steps are always the same and will work for any fabric you choose. Lace looks equally wonderful on print chiffon and plaid wool flannel.

Size it up
The scarf shown here started with a 77-inch by 18-inch rectangle; however, a tall person needs a longer scarf, and the fabric should be considered before you cut the width. A lightweight chiffon looks skimpy if it’s cut too narrow, and a soft, lofty wool fabric can overwhelm if it’s cut too wide.
