Collar and lapel trim–ideas please
I’m making a wool suit with traditional style collar and lapels on the jacket. My client wants a braided trim on both lapel and collar. I’m hand sewing the trim to the upper collar and the lapel. What I can not seem to decide on is HOW ON EARTH I end the trim on the lapel! The trim ends on the collar and the “notch” end of the lapel will be in a seam and the trim simply follows the edge since it is too bulky to make any turns. I know it will end on the inside of the lapel that is then the front facing. I need ideas to finish the end nicely. For the most part the jacket will worn fastened at the front since she wants a frog closeure. That’s another new trick I need to learn–I’ve got to try to unbraid some of the strands and reform it into FROG. I have my trusty THREADS info on making the Chinese ball button and info on making the frog from gimp. Does anyone have more info I need? Do you have info you learned the hard way?
