If you look at any fashion or home decorating magazine these days you will notice that the pages are full of free standing lace embroidery. The lace is being made into dresses, skirts, and shirts, placed on purses and even shoes. They say that everything goes in circles and that what once was vintage is now new. With that in mind I decided to design this collection titled Free Standing Lace.
It has been a number of years since I’ve designed a freestanding lace collection; Anita’s Lace was one of Anita Goodesign’s first releases. So you might say we are returning to where we started almost 10 years ago. This collection contains large designs as well as small designs that are stitched on stabilizer, rinsed and then sewn on garments. Free standing lace is very simple to embroider since it is only one color and stitched on only stabilizer.
