Lace Wedding dresses – masonry draft
Working with lace is one of my favourite aspects of wedding dress making. There are so many different types of lace, with evocative names; delicate ‘Chantilly’, bold ‘Guipure’, traditional ‘corded’ or modern ’embroidered’, to name but a few. I have more than 400 samples in my books from lace making regions all over the world, French or Italian lace, the Far East or close to home from the traditional lace making town of Nottingham! Lace can be used as flat fabric with the beautiful scalloped edging trimming hems and necklines, or the motifs can be carefully cut and hand appliquéd onto plain fabric to magnificent effect.
