Capri Floral Lace Fabric Pewter
Beautiful Drapey Lace
This lace is a beautiful shade of silver/pewter grey with a soft drapey hand and a re-embroidered look to the floral pattern. It does have a shimmer in the lace motiffs from the rayon thread which doesn't show in the picture very well. I had hoped for a matte finish, but this shimmer isn't too overt, so I will be able to use it for special ocassion dresses. I did get confused by the "scallop border parallel with the selvedge" information, hence my 4 stars not 5. But, the description does say straight at the selvage (in addition to scallop border) so don't expect a beautiful clean scallop edge to this lace. If you want a true scallop border on the sleeves or hem for example, you will need to apply a double scallop trim to your garment. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
