1. Measure the distance around the neck opening.
2. Cut the 1¾ inch lace to that size plus 3 inches.
3. Sew a basting stitch at the top of the lace.
4. Pull the bobbin thread of the basting stitch and ease the lace around the neck to make the lace lie flat. Caution: If you do not add enough ease, the lace will curl upward.
5. Pin the lace around the neckline and cut off any extra leaving ¼ inch overlap in the back.
6. Sew the lace around the neckline using a small zigzag stitch.
7. Measure the bottom of the shirt.
8. Cut the 4 inch lace this size plus 1½ inch. This is for a ¼ inch overlap in the back and for 1 ¼ inch stretch on the shirt.
9. Pin the lace evenly onto the shirt bottom so it just brushes the lower edge.
10. Sew the lace just above the bottom of the shirt using a small zigzag stitch stretching the shirt slightly as you sew.
11. Print the large rose template from the templates file on the CD.
12. Center the template on the tee shirt front. If you only have a 4 x 4 hoop, the rose comes in 3 pieces that can be hooped separately.
13. Hoop a piece of cut-away stabilizer the size of your hoop.
14. Hoop the iron-away stabilizer on top.
15. Stitch the rose pattern.
16. Remove the stabilizer.
Note: This design works best on scoop or v-neck tee-shirts. If the shirt has a narrow neck, you will need to add a small placket in the back neck opening.
