How to sew scalloped lace onto polyester at hem

Step 1: Split open bottom of one side seam. Pin lace onto polyester. Use a pin every few inches.
Step 2: Baste stitch on lace. (A baste stitch is simply holding the lace in place. Set your dial to 6 or 8 stitches per inch) Do not lock stitch in place, so NO back stitching!
(NOTE: if the lace is not scalloped along the top edge you can skip this step!)
Step 3: Zig zag stitch the lace on the top side. Remove baste stitch.
Step 4: Trim excess fabric up to the bottom of the zig zag stitch.
