HI DARLINGS! This is the third pair of the SEW IT ACADEMY sweatpants which I made HERE and HERE. I am obsessed with these and for good reason. I can make them out of so many fabrics and get very different looks. This is one of the courses in Sew It which also comes with copy shop and PDF patterns. It has become a very popular course.


Sewing with lace can be really fun but can also be frustrating. The delicate fabric is beautiful and adds a touch of femininity to any garment, but it requires some skill and patience to sew properly. There are some tips below on sewing DIY lace pants and using proper sewing machine settings to help you master lace sewing.



TIPS FOR SEWING DIY LACE PANTS


Choose the right needle and thread! When sewing with lace, it is essential to choose the right needle and thread. Use a fine needle, preferably a size 8 or 9, to prevent snagging or damaging the delicate fabric as you sew or handle it.


Use a walking foot: Lace can be slippery, and it can easily shift and become uneven while sewing. Using a walking foot ensures a smooth and even feed of the fabric, preventing any distortions or shifting in the lace.


Adjust the tension and stitch length: The tension on your sewing machine plays a vital role in the final outcome of your project. A high tension may result in puckering. Adjust the tension and stitch length accordingly, aiming for a stitch that is smooth and even without any gathers or puckers.


Test on scrap fabric first: It's always a good idea to test on scrap fabric before starting to sew on the lace. This allows you to experiment with different settings and techniques until you find the optimal result.

Use good quality lace: Quality plays a role in the ease of sewing with lace. Cheap, low-quality lace is often stiff, which makes it more challenging to maneuver and sew. Good quality lace is softer and more flexible, allowing for smoother sewing with fewer problems.











Sewing with lace is not terribly hard, but it does require some patience and skill. Follow these tips and proper machine settings to make your lace sewing experience enjoyable and rewarding! Remember to take your time, practice on scrap fabric, and use quality materials.
