Elastic Lace As Decorative Embellishment For Knit Garments
I am showcasing today’s tutorial on a simple t-shirt:
It’s a simply style knit tee but for this review I wanted to use the elastic lace. The shirt above was finished without any embellishment and for this review I made another one to add the lace.

Then after I determined which is the right and wrong side of the elastic lace (it’s hard to see but it’s there), I pinned the lace to my sleeve hem which I left unfinished (knits won’t unravel). I used a lot of pins to secure an even line:
With a zigzag stitch of 3 width and 2.5 length I stitched the lace on. This is how my sleeve looks now:
For the neckline I simply pinned the lace on and zigzagstitched around neckline:
