Beautiful Handcrafted Toddler Dress with Exquisite Heirloom Sewing Finishes …A Very Special Frock For a Special Lirttle Girl!

Sewn in label say ”Handmade Phippines- Size 18 Months”

Faggoting, no matter how you spell it (faggoting, faggotting, fagotting), is both useful and quite beautiful. It is used in joining two pieces of material by means of an insertion stitch. Victorian ladies used this most often on delicate lingerie. Silk, satin, linen and cotton are most suitable for this type of work. Thicker materials can also be faggoted together although this is done less often than in fine embroidery.

A great many stitches can be used as the insertion stitch. The stitches suggested to use are either crisscross or twisted type stitches.

The thread used varies according to the material or the purpose for which the faggoting is required. A lightly twisted embroidery thread or twisted silk is best used for fine embroidery, and stranded cotton and wool may be used for thicker, coarser materials.

In early Victorian times, the edge of the hem was first finished with a tiny hem or with over-sewing along the seam line once the hem had been turned under. To make a very strong edge, they would work two lines of over-sewing. As time progressed, ladies dispensed with the two lines of over-sewing.
