Today we will sew the Entredeux to our Daygown Sleeves and the Neck edge.
You will find the instructions for the Old Fashioned Method of Attaching Entredeux to Fabric in your instruction guide on page one, under the heading Sewing Techniques. Read them.
Read all the instructions in this Lesson Four post before beginning to stitch.
PS. You can have your tea first if you want to!
Stitch the entredeux to the sleeve first.
Entredeux pinned to sleeve, right sides together and raw edges even.
Cut the Entredeux to fit the sleeve edge. This should be about 8". Do not cut larger than 8". If your sleeve is wider than 8", stitch a thread 1/8" from the raw edge of the sleeve and pull up the thread to ease the fabric to fit the 8" of entredeux. The difference between easing and gathering is that easing pulls the fabric up slightly without gathers forming.
You will go to Attaching Entredeux the Old Fashioned Method for more detailed instruction.
Stitch the entredeux to Neck Edge.
Read the instructions about your neck edge in your Pattern Instruction Guide.
Look in View 2, Step 4.
Then go to the Lesson about Attaching Entredeux.
Your thread will frequently run out before you finish stitching. When stitching entredeux to fabric, you can usually hide a knot behind the entredeux. But when stitching a seam, there is no place to attach or hide a knot. Click on Knot for information.
Question for Lesson 3: How many years have you been sewing?
Now it's TEA TIME!!
Pretty yellow Roses are from my garden.
We are having tea in my garden today!
Oatmeal Crisp cookies, and Lady Grey tea. My Brown Betty teapot was carried home to me all the way from England by my sweet Mother In Law. Don't you love the name..."Brown Betty"?
And pretty tea cups!
Enjoy my flowers.
Thank you for coming!
