Add Lace Appliqué to Your Dress And Stand Out

Lace appliqué is a piece of embroidered fabric. It is sewed or embroidered on a sheer base like tulle or mesh. The techniques like twisting, looping, and knotting the threads are used to create it. The patterns of appliqué are usually floral or botanical. We can also call them lace patches that offer a great opportunity for creativity in clothing. They look good with decorative elements such as beads, sequins, and rhinestones. Not only can you add them to your garment but also your shoes, handbags, and accessories.

How to choose lace appliqué for a wedding dress

Lace appliqués are perfect to add to your wedding gown. Imagine a plain white wedding gown with some beautiful appliqués on it. It will be perfect to put you in the spotlight. The type of your lace appliqué will depend on the material of your dress. For instance, a guipure lace appliqué will be perfect for dense fabrics like crape and the Chantilly patches will look amazing on sheer fabrics like tulle.

How to sew the lace appliqué into the fabric
