1 Mother, the lace is loose on my new ball dress and I want to wear it tomorrow night at Twelve Oaks.
2 Give me your gown, Scarlett, I will whip the lace for you after prayers.
3 On the bed lay the apple-green, watered-silk ball dress with its festoons of ecru lace, neatly packed in a large cardboard box.
4 The black bombazine, with its puffed sleeves and princess lace collar, set off her white skin superbly, but it did make her look a trifle elderly.
5 The lavender barred muslin was beautiful with those wide insets of lace and net about the hem, but it had never suited her type.
6 Mammy would have to lace her tighter.
7 "Put down that tray and come lace me tighter," said Scarlett irritably.
8 She thought of Melanie and saw suddenly her quiet brown eyes with their far-off look, her placid little hands in their black lace mitts, her gentle silences.
9 She had knitted socks and baby caps and afghans and mufflers and tatted yards of lace and painted china hair receivers and mustache cups.
10 I wish he'd bring in more hospital supplies and less hoop skirts and lace.
11 Rhett, hearing of this from Melanie, brought in from England yards and yards of gleaming white satin and a lace veil and presented them to her as a wedding gift.
12 Rhett had brought her that linen and lace from Nassau on the last boat he slipped through the blockade and she had worked a week to make the garment.
13 The sun dipped in and out from behind hurrying clouds, lighting the street with a false brightness which had no warmth in it, and the wind fluttered the lace of her pantalets.
14 She laughed in soft excitement and spun about on her toes, her arms extended, her hoops tilting up to show her lace trimmed pantalets.
15 The dull-gold damask draperies which had covered the arching French windows at the back of the room were missing, and only the remnants of the lace curtains remained, clean but obviously mended.
