Subject: got a class dress with 'lamee' in the applique - hate it! - it always seems to fray. Any ideas of how to get around this/prevent this would be much appreciated.

I used it in a dress myself. I used a double sided wonder under with fabric on both side, ironed them together. I then made it into an applique, along the stitching, I used the stop fraying glue and this helped keep the fabric from fraying. I hope that this helps. (NT)id momThursday, September 19, 03:28:58pm

Discuss with the tc and suggest that the costume be changed to eliminate that fabric. It should not be used on a class dress. You will online to have problems. (NT)Good luckSaturday, September 21, 06:24:33pm

Use fusible woven interfacing to back the lame'. It will make a huge difference in the durability of the lame'. I use it on school dresses with success. (NT)BJSunday, September 22, 03:48:51pm
