Trim Done

Well, I finished this shirt just in time.

This simple edge was done using a King Tut Quilting thread color 918.  There is a very short color change and much shorter than the Sulky Blendables I used a few years ago.  This thread tats up a bit smaller than size 80.

I have basted the trim on using the same thread. The length of the trim is about 18 inches and goes between the shoulder seams. I slightly eased the trim to make that turn at the V.  

You can't see from this picture but I used frontside/backside tatting as this will only be seen from one side and it was a nice easy practice using this technique.

See you all in about a week as I am off to Cambridge Ontario for some new adventures and to take in Tat Days at the Fringe too.  I'll post when I get back.


  1. It's lovely. I think it's funny that you've been using King Tut, which is a US company, and you're on the 'opposite' side of Canada from there, and I've been using Valdani #35 thread (the machine embroidery threads - been using the #60 ones, too - now THAT's tiny thread). King Tut - if I've been told correctly - is approximately the size of DMC 100. I think the Valdani #35 is about the same size, can't remember. I'm on the opposite side of the US from where Valdani is. I really like both of the trims for the shirts. They're very pretty, and the colors go so well with the shirts.

  2. Wow so tiny lovely to decorate the tee!
