As I was working on my dress, and have not yet been able to locate stores that has got all the items I would like to use, I did come up with other solutions. Thought you might want to see what I did. Instead of the lace for the edge around the v-neck and sleeves, I used a matching solid blue stretch fabric. Cut a long strip and ironed it lengthwise to be used as a piping. To help me keeping it perfectly on the width of 4mm, I did use the basting stitch (6 mm long straight stitch) to run on the folded edge 4mm from the edge. Then it was easy to sew along that line stitching it in place on the dress.  I recommend using the Husqvarna Viking® Interchangeable Dual Feed Foot [1], when you are sewing on several layers of stretch fabric. 


Next thing was to stitch it along the edge, following the 15mm (5/8th) seam allowance. Iron again and finally I top stitched below the piping with a twin needle (2mm). Of course using the Twin Needle Safety in the Set Menu to make sure I do not accidentally hit any other stitch and prevent me from breaking my needle.


  I have finished the dress and the wallhanging. Here they are!

I have cut another dress in black with white dots. A Burda Magazine that I did bring here had a nice pattern.

Happy Sewing!
