✂-The Designer's Tip of The Day-Broderie Anglaise

Broderie Anglaise, also known as Eyelet, is a fine, plain-weave cotton that has been embroidered in such a way as to make small holes. Usually white or pastel color and often times forms a scalloped and embroidered edge.

Cutting out: may need to layout to place embroidery at hem edge.

Seems: plain, neatened with serger or zigzag stitch; a French seam can also be used.

Needle: machine size 12/14; sharps for hand sewing.

Use for: baby clothes, summer skirts, dresses and blouses.
