Adding Trim with a Finished Edge to a Flutter Sleeve
Posted by Natasha Chrismas on
Do you ever wonder how to finish/attach the ends of scalloped piece of lace or trim when you are creating a flutter sleeve? Perhaps you're adding a second layer and not sure how to finish it nicely?
It is actually really easy with a few simple tricks! Firstly, lay the trim out flat.
Place the straight edge of the pattern piece over the finished edge of your trim and cut to shape.
Sew a line of gathering stitches around the curved edge.
Gather the trim, and attach to the garment being sewn.
If you are using a smaller trim that is less wide than the pattern piece, or even as a second layer to a flutter, simply curve the ends of the trim using the flutter piece as a guide. Cut the curve towards the scalloped edge.
Sew a line of gathering stitches around the curved edge and attach the the garment.
Pretty! Now the scalloped edge is tucked nicely into the finished seam of the garment.
