Subject: Looking for a solution to an itchy neckline

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]

My dd's new dress has one of the higher collars popular these days, and the edge is embroidered with silver metallic thread. She likes the collar, but doesn't like the way the thread itches. I glued ribbon to the inside of the collar, hoping that would help, but can't get it up high enough to help her with the very edge of the collar. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

I'd put on a new collar. Only use soft (NT)velvet for that reason.Wednesday, July 31, 05:08:23pm

Could you have someone satin stitch over it in non-metallic silver (or another color in the dress)? Maybe add rhinestones to cover the thread change? (NT)--Wednesday, July 31, 06:54:27pm

I would just get a velvet trim and stitch it over the edge... (NT)bgWednesday, July 31, 07:57:41pm

Could you seal it with a clear fabric glue? (NT)Hmmm, will keep thinkingWednesday, July 31, 10:21:34pm

You can get silver metallic bias tape or hem tape. (NT)Google it - usually only a few dollars.Thursday, August 01, 11:50:04am

I think I would try putting Tegaderm over it. It's clear so you will still have the look of the metallic thread but not the itch. You could fold it right over the edge and it would give a nice smooth finish. I think the Mod Podge would dry stiff and make it possibly even scratchier. (NT)-Thursday, August 01, 08:29:28pm
