The adjustments on the pattern are marked and I'm ready to mark the seam line on the lace.
The seam allowance is pinned back on the SA line and through the lace to make it stable. You can now see the edge where the stitching line is to be.
Next is to mark the stitching line using hand basting and a light colored thread such as pink. A dark thread can leave "dark" lint in the lace.
The pattern pieces are removed and time to line up the sections of the gown.
The lace pieces are overlapped matching notches (marked with thread) and seam lines created by the pink thread stitching.
Then - pinned and basted together.
Next is to trim the overlapping seam into a pretty edge. This you do by cutting close to the corded lace and around the motifs.
