I am making a skirt with a circular ruffle attached to the bottom. I made the skirt out of taffeta (which may have been a mistake in retrospect…) and I need a way to finish the raw edges of the ruffle. My first intention was to use the narrow hem foot on my brother machine and hem around them but it is really difficult to get it to work around the curved fabric. I am trying to imitate a skirt that was made with a serged edge on it, but I have no serger. Can the overlock stitch work? The taffeta just seems to shred at the edge… I have been looking online at overlock feet and side cutter feet for my machine, does anyone know how these might work? Is there any special needle/thread I should be using with this very light taffeta?
