Lace and it’s Uses

When we think of lace the most common use of it comes to mind. What’s that use you ask? It’s adding the lace to our outfits to make them more beautiful.

Laces come in all sorts of materials, from net to banarasi to zari work to simple pearl strand, and they can be used to adorn all sorts of clothing and crafts.

The most common and usual way of using lace is to put it on the border of your dupatta or the border of your kameez. But a lace can also be used to enhance the beauty of a saree or a lenhga or other party and casual outfits.

Sometimes lace is even used to make the outfit or an article in an outfit a bit longer. For example, if you don’t have enough material to make your kameez to your desired length, all you need to do is add a beautiful wide-make lace at the bottom of your kameez. The lace not only makes your kameez look amazing, it also adds the desired length to it; without having you to worry about looking for the same or similar print or colour for your kameez.

Some other uncommon uses of lace are related to craft around your house. To spice up your sofas and your sitting room, just add some banarasi, net, or zari work lace to your cushions. You will change the look and add accents to your sitting room with just a simple use of lace on your cushions. Some other items lace can be used on are: lampshades, curtains, table covers, place mats, bed sheets, pillow covers, and so much more.

So next time you’re in store looking at laces or are thinking of spicing up your home, don’t think of the common use of lace and think outside the box.
