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.
