Add some vintage charm to your sewing projects with this delicate lace hem. This technique works best on lightweight fabrics, so use it for skirt and dress linings, or nightgowns and slips.

Step 1: Pin the Lace

Pin the lace all the way around your hem. Keep in mind that the bottom edge of the lace will be the bottom edge of your hem.
What do you mean in Step 3 when you say "sew together the overlapping lace"? You sew the lace to itself??
Yes, after you trim the fabric away, sew the lace to itself where it overlaps with a zigzag stitch.
Ahhh, so that it finishes the edge of the material the lace is sewn to. <br><br>TY for the reply :)
Cool! I can't wait to try it
