Lace, soft, gentle, delicate and luxurious. Historically only worn by the wealthy and gentry. Now available to all in many forms, compositions and colours! Used to accessorise or trim garments or as the main focus. Particularly favoured for lingerie and occasion wear.
This super-stretch, soft lace has a lovely faded emerald hue. The vertical striped design incorporates diamond lattice motifs which produce a very retro '60s style - similar to Argyle tights! The alternating semi-opaque and open mesh stripes provide the ideal opportunity to create garments that offer modesty by covering bare arms and legs yet maintaining a light airy style. This lace is soft and malleable and has excellent stretch.
Use Faded Emerald - Stretch Lace for close-fitted garments which require - stretch; 30% (length), 60% (width)

You don't have to keep this pretty fabric under wraps, team with toning or contrasting stretch jersey, stretch velour or soft-touch jersey/interlock to create pretty tops, tunics, dresses. Alternatively, utilise the Argyle style and create '60s style lace leggings, bolero style tie front shrugs and stoles - ideal for covering your arms when wearing sleeveless dresses and tops.
