    Hello again….

    Being a complete novice to hand sewing, can someone please tell me what kind of stitch to use to attach the waist trim on this dress please? I have a giant book of all the different hand stitches, but am at a loss on how to do this and maintain the the dimension of the tube. Any help greatly appreciated – I am so close to being done!

    I am not sure what it’s correct name is but I use this stitch, not too tight with the tension.

    A small stitch to the tube (or the dress) and then a longer one to the other, but don’t pull too tight!

    Good luck!

    xx Nicole

    I would use ladder stitch as it becomes invisible once sewn.http://www.squishycutedesigns.com/ladder-stitch/
    It’s often used to close up an opening left for turning. I also used it last week to reattach the bottom of a school blazer sleeve the that had parted from the body, perils of being the third child 🙂
