Hello. I'm working on some pleated headed curtains and want to add a vertical edge of glass bead trim. Do I sew this by hand to the reverse of the curtain along the edge? Are there any tricks of the trade I need to know about? I've made many curtains but never added this type of trim before.
There are 3 options here
1. Sew the braid to the front face (if you like the braid and consider it a feature)
2. Sew the braid onto the back of the curtain ( easy to do)
3. Create a slot (folded) in the leading edge of the curtain and sew the trim into it, thus hiding the braid. (this is our preferred option: We fold a slot into the leading edge, tack the braid in place, then machine stitch.)
