It could have been pressed with the pleating system too..

I need help with this dress - can someone tell me how the fabric was cut/manipulated to with blend with the lace? I was told the process is called "encrusting the lace" - is a top stich done around the outline? Thanks for any help!

The main panels of the dress would have to be cut to the shape of the lace as the lace is just counted as another pattern piece.
I am tempted to say that the black fabric is faced or lined and then the lace top-stitched onto it, but I am extremely doubtful as to whether that would be strong enough to keep the lace from ripping when one moved (in this case, opening one's legs), as the black seems to be jersey and the lace would not stretch with the jersey.
Otherwise I would not know how to do it and I have never heard of encrusting lace, sorry.

It depends, where is the binding?
e.g. if the binding is on the lip of the apron front pocket, you'd attach the binding before you attached the pocket to the apron.

Wow you girls are all so talented! I have a sewing machine and have a lot of projects in mind. I should just sign up for a class though - I can hardly sew a straight line!
Are some of you self-taught?
