How To Look After Beaded Laces
As a luxury fabric, it should be treated like any expensive item you own, gently. The right way to clean this type of fabric is by a dry-clean. In some cases, it could be ok to wash it by hand while you make sure to gently treat the garment and not agitate it. You can fill a bathtub or large sink with cold water and use a small amount of mild soap. Hand washing is not suitable for any kind of Beaded Sequin Lace, so always test with a small swatch and/or consult the producer regarding your case.
Tips for making a garment with Beaded Lace
Sewing with beaded lace will required more delicate work, but of course, it will be worth it as you will create a luxury garment that will stand out! Before starting a project it is important to figure out how you will sew the Beaded Wedding Fabric. One way is sewing by machine, for that, you have to remove first the beads or any hard materials from your seam allowances before you can stitch your fabric pieces together using a sewing machine. You want to have a clean seam area along each edge. This will provide a professional finish in the final garment and be gentle on your sewing machine. Removing the materials along the seam allowances can be done by hand, or another way is to use a hammer to gently break the beads along with the seam allowances. This way will allow you to sew it by machine, however, you should still be careful and work slowly to make sure that your needle will not break.
Please avoid sewing directly on top of the materials/beads to prevent the final seem to be bulky and not lay flat, causing discomfort to the wearer. Also, you want to prevent your machine needle to be broken. Another approach for sewing beaded 3D Lace/tulle is to sew all the parts together by hand, although it will be a more time-consuming, slip stitching the seam allowance down will provide smooth, flat seams and a more comfortable, long-lasting fit.
Important tip: While you can iron a beaded lace (when done with proper techniques), it is not recommended to iron it multiple times. Therefore, a great tip is to use a slip stitch to keep the seam allowance layers flat and pointing in the desired direction (instead of ironing them). While it can be time consuming, slip stitching the seam allowance down will provide smooth, flat seams and a more comfortable, long lasting fit.
The major selling point is the glamour factor. The bride is the center of attention and some sparkle and glitz add to the attraction of any dress. The glint and glimmer of diamantes and sequins is both bewitching and seductive. As captivating as a bit of sparkle can be there’s a range of how shiny and sparkly each Beaded Bridal Lace will take you. A subtle embellishment of a few translucent sequins can transform a lace from pretty to enchantingly stunning. Ivory Sequinned Lace - Pleasance Lace and Ivory Sequinned lace - Etta are gorgeous examples of this.
The addition of light beading in the form of tubular or round beads, pearls or sometimes with a light sprinkling of diamantes makes for a bewitching bride. Ivory Beaded Lace - Ava, Ivory Wedding Lace - Kinsley and Ivory Beaded Lace - Cara are all testament to this. The light beading ensures that the handle of the lace remains light, the fabric drapes well and looks supremely sumptuous. The beading accentuates the beautiful design on the fabric and adds depth and distinction. Choosing beads or sequins of a slightly different color, for example, silver or gold, can change the aspect a lace offers, just look at Ivory beaded Lace - Heaven Lace or Ivory Beaded Lace - Cynthia.
