Hello,

Has anybody made/know of someone who has made the Colette Hazel with a border scalloped lace? I am a bit stumped on how I should handle the facing. There are also 2 front side panels that have facing as well (but i am not using the scalloped edge for those part). Because it is scalloped I can’t really add the facing at the end. Below is a photo first:

It is really important to me to keep the scallops. I am wondering if I should:

A) remove the facing completely for the center part, but cut it up and still use it for the side part. Then just iron interfacing on to the back of the center bodice?
B) add the facing in 3 parts in beginning, before i stitch any parts together, then this way I can layer the lace on top with the scallops overhanging slightly.
C) another idea??

Sorry if I didn’t explain anything well enough, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. thank you!

Cathy
