WHIPPING ON TRIMMING is generally done on an edge. If lace, it should be either gathered by pulling the heavy thread which is usually found at the top, or whipped and drawn as in a ruffle. Roll an inch or two of the garment material, place the lace with its right side to the right side of the material, and whip both together. (Fig. 32.) Lace may be whipped on plain if preferred, but it must be eased in. Fashion Design Drawing - Sewing Stitches 23.jpg

Insertion may be inset in the same way. A Ruffle Used as Trimming may be whipped and gathered. Roll the raw edge and overcast the material as tar as it is rolled, taking care to make the stitch below the roll,

not through it. (Fig. 33.) Draw up the thread, making the ruffle the desired fulness. Divide the ruffle in quarters and mark them with colored thread. Make corresponding marks on the edge to which the ruffle is to be attached. Roll the edge of the garment

and overhand the ruffle to it, taking a stitch in every whipped stitch of the ruffle.


Insertion, when the material has a straight

edge, are shown in Figs. 34 and 35. Fold the

material for a hem, creasing the lower foldFashion Design Drawing - Sewing Stitches 25.jpg

hard. Open the hem and baste the lace edge just below the lower fold, and stitch* (Fig. 34.) Turn back the hem and crease the material on a line with the top turning of the hem. Cut to within a small seam above this crease. Fold in the raw edge, insert the edge of the I lace insertion, and stitch. Turn a second hem, following the preceding directions, baste the other edge of the insertion just below the lower crease, and stitch as before. As many rows of insertion may be used in this manner as are desired.

down both edges of the insertion.
