Sewing trim on sheer panels?
I am making canopy- like panels for my granddaughter's 'Cinderella' room. These will be draping from a center crown and swagging over to the bedposts. Will also be making the panels for her 1 window as well.
My question is: I want to add some sort of trim onto the edges of these panels..beading, tassle fringe-whatever. I am not a 'seasoned sewer' but can get along okay. My machine is new-BUt not with all of the 'bells & whistles'. How do I go about adding this trim? What should I be aware of? Do I need something like bias tape on the underside? Will the material gather all up on me when I sew on the trim? More tension or less tension & how many stitches per inch should I use?
I paid $11 a yd at Joann's for this gorgeous baby pink sheer polyester that has tiny iridescent sequins sewn in it somehow. Not tacky and are well adhered to the material.
Thanks for your inputs!
