TUESDAY, AUGUST 9,1990 ALTON 8VBN1NG TKLftWRAPH PAG1WM Personal Notes Luxury fabrics arc coming back with a loud roar this year. You'll see cocktail and evening clothe* m fabrics ranting from sheerest chiffon to the heaviest fold encrusted brocade. Laces with gold metallic thread* in the design or else plain are both In fashion. tf you're planning to make a lace dress, these suggestions may help you achieve that elegant look you want. Pressing: Place material right side down, and press oyer heavy padding. Several thicknesses of Turkish toweling will do. Pitting: Baste garment together for fitting. Pins will fall through lacey design as fast as you put them in. Linings and facings: Never use self facing. Instead, use tulle or marquisette to retain sheemess. For lining, use taffeta. If lining entire dress, treat lining and lace as one piece. If dress has full skirt, only join two fabrics at waistline seam and leave side seams free. Wherever possible, use self edge of lace if it has a scalloped border. For instance, scooped neck and skirt bottom edge. Baste each section to tissue paper before machine stitching. Use medium length stitch (10-16 stitches per inchl, extra fine needle, and No. 00 and N6. 000 silk thread. Since lace i* narrow, you'll have to piece the skirt if it is a full circle. Instead of making a plain seam to sew piece to skirt, applique sections together. To do this, overlap two section* so design matches perfectly. You'll waste a little lace this way, but it's worth it. Baste pieces together; then using an overcasting overhanding, or blanket stitch, applique with fine close stitches, following outline of design (Fig. AI. If you have a zig-zag machine, use satin stitch. Now, cut raw edges close to stitches with embroidery scissors. Joining will be almost invisible (Fig. B.K Overdress: If dress is completely unlined and worn over variou^ hare sheath dresses, such as a tunic, special care must be taken with seams and darts. Also side seams on full skirts. A%'oid center front seams. Finish with regular French seams, making them very narrow, or better, a more delicate type of French seam half finished by hand. Unlike regular French seam, which is seamed on the outside of garment first, make plain seam on inside. Trim one edge to 'i inch: then turn under raw edges of untrimmed edge and hem by hand along machine stitching line. You'll have a pencil slim line. Finish darts in the same manner. If dress has long fitted kimono sleeve or short cap (avoid all set-in sleeves because arm hole seams are ugly), applique top seam of sleeve as you pieced skirt. Underarm is finished as regular seam. Hem: Finish full skirt with narrow horsehair braid unless scalloped edge is used. Slim skirt is turned up in normal way, catching stitches to lining only.

However, because so many are seeking her assistance, Miss Scott asks readers to please limit their letters to one question.
