Technique I used on the white dress in the Sew Beautiful article.
It made the Dress!
Use a 6 Crewel Needle and 4 to 6 strands of floss.
I separate the floss and then put it back together, thread the needle and iron the floss.
Weave the needle in and out of the entredeux edge.
I love white with just a touch of color and this is an excellent way to get the look I want.
Samples from a Class I teach on Embellishments.
Top picture shows floss woven through every hole of the entredeux.
In the bottom picture I have woven under two bars of the entredeux and over one bar. You can get many cute looks depending on how you weave the floss through the entredeux.
Using blue floss to match the embroidery I have woven the floss through the entredeux at the bonnet front where the snail shirring is attached.

Pink floss woven through the hem and the front swiss trim.
Remember to smooth the entredeux/floss out before you tie off the floss. You don't want the floss to gather up the entredeux.
Have fun with this technique!!
