Also, how should I add it to the dress? :s the only thing I can think of is glue, because wouldn't stitches show through?
Sorry if I sound like a newbie, I really am one ^^; Thank you in advance for any advice! (:
I got the lace for my dress at a fabric store called JoAnn Fabrics. It was like on a mini bolt, and it was cut like fabric.
As for attaching it, I posted a thread about it a little while ago, so I have the answer (not from me, I forgot who posted it) :
"Well, it's attached to the waistband of the dress if I'm seeing correctly. Take your waistband material (white, in this case) and your black lace. Cut out your waistband pattern piece (I assume you're using one...) make sure you have seam allowances for both. Baste the edges (loose hand or machine stitch meant to be taken out later....leave the thread tails nice and long). I usually do this in a contrasting color so I can find them quickly again and don't try to pull out the wrong threads. Sew normally to the bodice and skirt sections, then go back and remove the basting."
Hope it helps. (:
