|This is a tip I was shown by my tutor when attending a course at the London School of Fashion. To turn loops tiny enough to use on the back of a dress with tiny buttons such as a wedding dress use one of the old fashioned type of hair pins, the soft bendy type. Once the strip of fabric is folded and stitched, as narrow as you like, about half an inch from one end clip the folded edge to the stitching, then place one spoke only of the hair pin down the inside of your tube from the very beginning and the other spoke into the tube from the clip and then continue to run both spokes through your tube of fabric. By using this type of hair pin to turn your loops it enables you to bend the hair pin as flat as you like for the tiniest fabric loops without fear of the fraying. If anyone is unclear regarding this let me know and I will try to elaborate as I am unable to supply pictures.
