Originating in Damascus, Syria like many other great advancements, the Damask weave was originally designed to be fairly water resistant while also being beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely any of this lace is going to keep water away from you.
Available in six colors, each with its own sheer mesh backing, every yard of this lace sells for $26.99 and has clean scalloped edges, measuring 51 inches from side to side. The pattern itself is a fairly large, repeating depiction of a damask design, with easy curls and vines to spark the imagination.
This material would be great alone as lingerie or as veils, but could easily be coupled with other materials to make common clothes or dresses. It could be difficult to lay the pattern as a complete loop once its cut, but a bit of ribbon or some other flair to hide it shouldn’t be difficult to come by. For smaller projects like handbags, take care to select the exact parts of the pattern you want to keep, and if you want to get rid of scraps, they’ll be excellent wall art and picture frame decorations.
Use project glue or small stitches to hold lace securely.
