    I’ve been meaning to use the selvedge edges of fabric used for other projects. The selvages are great because they usually won’t fray. You can use them to anchor a shoulder seam so it doesn’t grow. A bunch of them can be used to trim a dress, skirt or a blouse. The uses are endless, really as your dress shows.
