Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shows how to sew a garment from lace. It takes a little more time than sewing out of regular fabric, but doing it this way will keep the seam allowances from showing through the holes in the fabric, and your lace motifs won’t get cut off at each seam line. Go to Melly Sews for a tutorial showing how.
