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.
