SATURDAY, JUNE 18. 1960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Miss Cunningham Bride In Edwardsville Church MRS. VINCENT MICHAEL BEV1LACQUA (Eickmnnn Studio) SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scott Long ago there were three accepted table settings. Formal dinner—white cloth with white and gold china; family dinner—second best cloth and china; very informal—unattractive mats and just as unattractive earthenware. Today, with so few of us fortunate enough to have servants, formal dinners and luncheons are virtually impossible. • We find ourselves in the era of the buffet. Silver, linen and china are much more varied than they were, and because of this, beautiful and imaginative table settings need no longer be expensive. An effect can be achieved by color, a centerpiece or unusual linens. • This daisy-trimmed table cloth is a perfect example of how you can be the envy of all your guests for very little money. It gives a striking effect. Necessary mechanical equipment is a slant-o-matic (zig- * zag) machine or zig-zag at* tachment, either of which will * make this job a breeze. Or if you have good eyes and oodles of patience, you can do it by hand. You'll need 6'L- yards of 48 inch wide cotton satin (or any other fabric you prefer i; ' enough cotton lace to cut out 281 daisies or any other flower motif. You can also purchase bands of daisies by the yard. To cut: Cut two lengths of fabric 48 x 9fi inches: with selvages together, fold in half widthwise and curve off corners to make a complete circle. Do this my measuring -18 '• inches from center point all around (see illustration*. 48" SfffH ¥8- v? \ • V Place right sides together and stitch along selvage edges. Press seam open. Now, face curved edges with matching bias binding. Stitch binding to cloth, right sides together Turn to wrong side and press Either hem by hand on wrong side or use zig-zag stitch and stitch hem on right «ide. Daisies. Baste each cut out motif to a piece of the tablecloth fabric. If motifs are cut from yardage rather than bonds, be sure to leave an inch or more around the ed^e or it will be difficult to ap- plique. Zig-zag >tit<'h motif to fabric around outJine of rnotif Trim e\ce»s tabru and lace away close to stitching. f using embroidery or cuticle scissors. Arrange appliqued motifs on cloth as illustrated, starting with one in the center and spacing them so that the 14th rnqtif is at the bottom edge of the cloth. Four of these linos will divide your cloth in quarters with one line (28 motif si right across the seam line. Then, as shown, cover lour quarters with motifs starting the second row with the seventh motif of the first row is. The third line starts where the sixth motif is. and so on. Tack each motif at center of design by using same satin stitch (zig-zag stitch) or stitch- inn center with Ball stitch. Your flowers are on so that your cloth can be easily washed and ironed. I suggest a bright yellow for the cloth. * * V » Miss Scott is happy to help Seams to Me readers with sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobe and lash ions.
