I have cut out a ball gown and it is lace/net fabric and hopefully fully lined. Now, am I best to make "flat " style seams on the lace by overlapping wrong side to right side and joining with an appropriate stitch – as opposed to making standard seams that may pucker ? Also I plan to line it BUT don’t wish the seams of the lining to be seen, I thought of making this with the seams onto my body rather than facing the sheer net — do you think this is a good idea too ?? I have a serger/ overlocker to ensure a neat finish. Any other ideas or advice greatly received. Thanks

    What your wanting to do sounds correct. I know Threads has done several articals on how to sew laces.

      Thank you – I am getting on really well with my new sewing machine and many of my fears have been unfounded . The lace has sewn together very neatly with open seaming and I have just started the lining.
