… to this with entredeux in between the laces (attached to the hem of the daygown):
The view of the dress with fancy hem attached:
For those who are interested in the technical side of things regarding the lace assembly before attaching the whole thing to the hem of the dress –
1. I found lightly spray-starching and pressing the laces before doing the lace assembly a big help. That stabilizes the laces very well especially when I was dealing with long lengths of laces.
2. I used a clear foot so that I can easily keep track of the stitching:
3. I also made full use of my magnifying glass whenever I feel like I need it to magnify the entredeux holes when attaching the lace to the entredeux:
4. I used a zia-zag stitch (with W=2.2, and L between 1.0-1.2, adjusted as needed)
The shocking math of all this — just for this little infant daygown, the amount of laces/trims used was 8 1/8 yards of French Val Lace, and 8 1/8 yard of entredeux!!!
I hope you enjoyed the progress report on my Old Fashioned Baby Daygown, and I hope you have a Marvelous Monday, all my bloggy friends!
