Favorites - Swiss Edging with Scallops

Swiss Edging shown in  White on Top and Champagne underneath.

This is a favorite!
Swiss Edging with attached Entredeux for stitching ease.

It is pictured here in white along the hem of a skirt.

Click on picture to enlarge and you can see how I've woven embroidery floss through the holes of the entredeux part of the  Swiss Edging.

For details on how to do this see Entredeux Embellishments on my blog.

This is the dress the hem belongs to.

This is a Fancy Lace Hem that is finished in the Champage Swiss Edging.

It belongs to my New pattern (ready in May) French Acadian Sundress.

Swiss Edgings that have the edging along one side and entredeux on the other  make a wonderful (and quick) finish to a Dress or Daygown.  They sew onto the fabric just like Entreduex…and your done!
