Trimming a dress with metallic lace is just the ticket for a New Year's Eve party! This particular tip from Ruth Wyeth Spears and the 1920s describes a wide band of "metal lace" that is sewn in place with a combination of brightly colored embroidery thread and metal thread that matches the lace. Pay attention to the lace trim at the sleeves. I love this dress! Do you think that is fur at the hemline?
