Lace & Dye Arrived


Photo Link

The lace came yesterday as well as the dye, and I'm very pleased with it. It's very nice and drapey with a beautiful sheen to it. It's heavy enough to hang nicely I think. Holding it up, I am afraid that although the galloon edge is beautiful, it may be a little too delicate looking for the skirt I'm thinking of.

I probably will not get to dye it until next week, but I did handwash and machine dry a swatch. It shows no change whatsoever, so that's very encouraging.

The lace really is beautiful. You made a great choice and hopefully you can make it work for your garment.

Breathtaking lace, Liana. Enjoy the dyeing and skirt making choices!

The lace looks fantastic, to add some stability for the fragile lace you could use an underlayer of silk organza.

What a beautiful piece of lace! Love the motif. Not your basic roses or chrysanthemums.
