Baptismal Gown continued

lindamaries | Posted in General Discussion on

Okay, I’ve just received my pattern for the gown. It is so-o-o cute and lovely on the picture.
I’ve looked over the directions and have a question:

It says: “Cut out the yokes…Roll and whip the bottom of the yokes…whip entredeux to the rolled bottom edge…and then whip the 1″ insertion lace to the entredeux.”

What, pray tell, is the entredeux????

    Entredeux is a type of lace insertion. The lace has straight edges which can both be attached to either fabric or other laces. Used often in French hand sewing. I made a baptismal gown for my DGD doing this technique by machine a la  Martha Pullen. It was really fun. There is a picture posted here somewhere.

      Thanks Jean! Hey, I think you are on line at the same time that I am!

      Happy computing while you're not sewing!!
