Can anyone recommend a good online resource for finishing the edges of lace garments? I am planning to make a very simple jacket with a stable, drapey cotton/poly lace fabric.
Thanks much in advance :)

An article by Claire Shaeffer in the Oct/Nov 2011 Threads gives 6 ways to finish the edges of lace. I don't know if the article is on-line or not.
If you can't find it let me know by PM with your e-mail address and I'll scan the article and send it to you.
