Hi, I need help in edging laces like chantilly or other fine laces when a boughten edging is not available. I tried soly, and other products but the machine edging would come out and curl after soaking out the solvy.

Tear-away leaves the white tissue which shows when removed.

I'm using an Elna Heirloom sewing machine, have tried various adjustments to no end.

Please advise desperate sewer!

I've just sewn a simple double turned hem using a longer straight stitch length with great success. I've also used a zig zag stitch. Both have worked well without the need for additional product.

Just a thought, when we do a rolled edge on the serger for veils, on bridal tulle, we do it over satin rattail. We also sometimes just zig zag with the convention machine so it makes a kind of picot edge. If rattail is too stiff, try a heavy yarn, or maybe hand embroidery floss left with all the strands together. Also you might try using tulle as a facing, cut 1 inch strips, and sew on as if it is a facing turn to the wrong side and top stitch or zig zag it down.

You may want to post this question in the message board sweetie instead of the sewing tips section. Good luck!
