LOVELY
LETTUCE
EDGING
Lettuce edges take advantage
of the fabric's
stretchi-
hess. To get the frilly
effect,
you
stretch
the fabric
while
stitching
the garment
edge. The more the fabric
is stretched,
the smaller
and more
numerous
the r_p-
pies, in this process,
some
fabrics
tend
to develop
runs, so test a swatch
first.
Machine

are the
same
as above

are
invaluable he|pers for stitching
these stretch fabrics.
