I just received some beautiful stretch lace from Spandex House. I see that it stretches along the selvage and is fairly stable across the width. So when I cut it, will I cut it with the stretch running across (around) my body?

The general rule of thumb is to place the greatest degree of stretch (GDOS) around the body.

Which lace did you get? What are you planning on making?

I think yes. The rule of stretch over rides other rules. You need the garment to fit nicely and because you don't want the lace to sag. Photos??

Thanks, ladies!

This is the lace:



And I'll be using it with a white cotton knit to make McCall's 6435, View C.

Can't wait to see how your top looks, I have that pattern in my stash.
Greater stretch goes around, that's why it's important to always check. (ask me how I know, lol)
Swimwear fabric is notorious for having more lengthwise stretch.

I LOVE the view with the sweetheart neckline! Can't wait to see you put that pretty lace to use.

I'm going to make the view with the sweetheart neckline, but im making the other view with the white lace. I have a black and white print and black mesh for the sweetheart view.

Now it's time to dig out my serger and see if I can "make it work." The serger, that is. That sucker scares me.
