We used Guipure lace (also known as Filet lace, according to Wikipedia) for the inset of Gail, our BurdaStyle variation of the Malissa. This heavy, loosely weaved lace requires special methods for finishing. If you are adventurous and ambitious enough to giveGuipure a try, this How To is a must. However, even if you are using a more traditional type of lace, still give this How To a look, as the methods are still applicable. Here, I am just demonstrating on the neckline. If you are following this to make the Gail dress, start with casing the neckline, then apply your buttonloops, then do the center backs (after applying buttonloops), then the armholes.
