Add this pretty hem to any skirt or dress lining to give it a vintage charm. I think it would also make a fabulous hem for a gorgeous silk charmeuse slip or nightie. It's really easy to do!

Technique Materials

Something lightweight that needs hemming, enough lace to go all the way around the hem plus 1 inch, and thread that matches the colour of your lace.

    This was really helpful! But the last line confused me. What overlapping lace? Sorry I’m a visual person and I can’t picture where the lace would be over lapping. Also, would you need to hem the fabric at all or does the lace just take care of that part?

    Thank you for posting this! I’m about to make a skirt and realized that this giant spool of lace that I recently bought would be a perfect embellishment…. And then I realized that I have never added lace to anything and wasn’t sure exactly how.

    This is just what I needed. _
