SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINE Seams to Me Fabrics and Trims Add Variety By PATRICIA SCOf T One simple dress pattern can be used extensively if you change fabrics and trims to add variety. For instance, a scooped neck, sleeveless sheath dress is ideal for summer in linen, cotton, synthetic blends, silk, etc. The trim can be one of many. Here are four that are simple to apply. Each is completely different. Arrow Trim (Figure A) 1. Mark center lines of arrows VA inches apart in the position you wish, with one shorter than the other. 2. Center grosgrain ribbon or single fold bias tape over these lines and top-stitch along the edges with matching thread. 3. For arrowhead: pin a 4- inch strip of ribbon or tape to the ironing board with pin at center of one edge of strip, right side up. Fold ends of strip under to form point at pin and so that base of triangle measures 114 inches. Press. Place over raw end of stitched strip on garment, and stitch around triangle. Cut away excess ends close to triangle. Pocket Flaps (Flffiiro B) 1. Make paper pattern of flaps and cut two. Bind curved edge with double-fold bias tape. For neut curves: Have wider fold of tape at underside. Pre- shape tape around curved flap with iron. Stitch outer edge of tape at curve. Stitch close to inner side of tape. 2. Bind top edge with bias tape. 3. To attach flaps, mark location at upper edge only. Pin flaps, wrong side up, with curve toward neck, having straight bound edge just below mark. Stitch through fabric close to binding. Fold flap down and press. Loop Braid Edging (Fig. C) 1. Stitch braid on right side of fabric through straight edge of braid and on seamline of neckline, having braid loops toward waistline. (Zipper foot attachment is helpful for braid application.) 2. Complete neck facing as pattern instructs, being sure that neckline seam is on line of the trim stitching. Middy Tabs (Figure D) 1. Make pattern for tabs, and cut two for each tab. 2. Trim one piece for each tab: Stitch a row of middy braid across center of tab. Leaving a %-inch space, stitch a row on either side of center. (Leave 14-inch braid extending at ends to avoid fraying later.) 3. Pin trimmed tab to plain tab with righl sides together. Stitch a H-inch seam around edge leaving 2 inches free on one long side. Turn to right side, slip-stitch opening closed and press. 4. Attach tabs to dress where desired by sewing through buttons at each end. * * * * Miss Scott is always glad to hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her column, but because of the great volume of mail received, daily, she cannot answer individual letters. © 1963, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate In Urbana Homemakers' Conference Will Focus on Leadership Training URBANA—About 250 Illinois homemakers from all parts of the state will get leadership training at the 30th annual Citizenship and Homemakers Extension Federation Organization Conference June 12 to 14 at the University of Illinois.
