All Over Lace

All over lace is simply lace that uses a repeat pattern all over the entire fabric, rather than just being confined to certain areas of it. Lace is a patterned, openwork fabric made by plaiting knotting looping or twisting the delicate threads. Originally lace was all handmade, but by around the early 1800’s machine lace was becoming more popular. All over lace is generally sold by the metre, like regular fabrics rather than being a set size like other lace fabrics. This type of lace is generally cheaper as it can be mass produced and is typically used in bridal wear, dresses and other apparel.
