Hi hi! This is a follow up question to this question
Sorry if this is basic, but how do I sew the applique to the dress? Do I just place strong strategic stitches along the back? Is there a "best" way to do it? Should I trim the tulle? I cannot
mess this up, so your guidance is much appreciated, and "just do it" is not an option. The applique consists of various types of metal chains sewn to a tulle backing. It will be going right in the middle of the top, mid-sweetheart neckline.
I've looked up "how to sew applique" and other various related searches, but I'm only finding things related to fabric appliques or ones that iron on. Can you help me?
Thanks in advance!
