DIY Inspiration: Lace Details

Lace is one of those embellishments that never really goes away. (Sometimes it takes a leave of absence, but then it comes back, refreshed and better than ever.) Although lace appliques have been around for hundreds of years, designers can still find fresh new ways to use them. This season there are some great examples of carefully placed lace embellishments. You can easily sew, glue, or bond lace to a finished garment for a luxurious touch even on something as simple as a t-shirt. Or go all out and add lace accents to a dress for a va-va-voom effect.
