We couldn’t find just the right lace for our romper inset, so we decided to make our own. After tracing a leafy pattern, we cut it out of doubled, stiffened chiffon, and then finished the edges with embroidery floss and a blanket stitch. This is a bit time-consuming, but having a little piece of heirloom couture heaven in your closet might be worth it!

Technique Materials

6045 Romper Pattern, chiffon, double sided fusible, embroidery floss, pattern making supplies

    hi, this is lovely :) just wodering if i was to do something similar with cotton cut outs and embroidery thread stitching, would the blanket stitch stop the edges from fraying? would I have to take special precautions when washing? it would be great if you could answer asap because i need my garment finished in two days lol

    I like this but I can see it’d be time spent well done.
