Lace Fabric Source - fabric.com - Pattern B6095
The right side of the lace is showing here. I quadruple check each piece to make sure that the right and left sides are laid out with the right side of the lace on top
1) Traced another tissue version of the pattern I've been altering - Made two copies (I kept original copy for future patterns of course)
2) There is a scallop edge on only one side - Women's patterns are usually right-over-left. So I first laid out one of my tissues underneath (on the wrong side) with the scallop edge going down the middle
3) Then I carefully placed the left tissue underneath the lace and quintuple check that the right side of the lace will come out right for the entire bodice!
Why Two Tissues? - I will baste right through the tissue pieces to get the darts positioned right. Then rip the paper off. I don't see a better way to mark them properly. You can also thread or tape baste, but you'll still have to position the pattern very cautiously . Lace moves around a lot too.
