Trims & Embellishments
Pure silk lace, Swarovski crystals, sequins, beaded lace— more than just bling...
d'Italia has full bodied laces which usually come in 90 centimetres in width, 120 centimetres or up to 130 centimetres, whereas you can also buy lace trims. A Chantilly lace for example – Chantilly trims and beaded trims are great for the neckline. You can use them on the shoulder seams, along the cuffs and along the hem. The good thing with using this lace trim is that they’re not too big, so you can cut into them. You can cut straight down the centre and appliqué them. This is quite popular, especially for around the shoulder seam and for the arm holes.
d'Italia also has beautiful beaded lace trims. This is great for the bodice, to go up and down, or you can also go straight through it. You’ll also find finer, smaller laces that are great for just under the bust. If you wanted to break up a dress, smaller laces are great for that. You can also use it for shoulders with just a little bit of silk satin underneath it, leaving the scallop part bare to show some skin.
These are great for appliquéing around the hem of the skirt, especially bridal dresses or even on a wedding dress veil.
