This article from Threads #186 (August/September 2016) will have you thinking differently about small, dainty embellishments.

Delicate details from heirloom sewing, while used most often for special children’s clothes, can look stylish and sophisticated on women’s garments. At about half the scale of standard piping, binding, and rickrack, the miniature versions offer refined embellishments for edges and seams. Working such fine details also conveys a sense of artisanship because of the care and skill necessary to incorporate them into garments. Follow along and learn a few heirloom sewing techniques that can add subtle sophistication to your garments.
