Rickrack has been around for years and is most often seen on casual garments.  View A of this classic dress shows how it can also be used to add a special touch to a dressier garment.  Learn my easy technique for using tiny rickrack stitched to entredeux as a trim.  The simple dress features release tucks in the front and back, sweet cap sleeves and a linen collar and cuffs.  The collar and cuff edges are trimmed with rickrack and the collar can be embroidered by machine or hand.  My sample was embroidered with Zundt embroidery design 202242.

View B is a frothy heirloom confection made with batiste, lace, and hand embroidery.  The released tucks in the front have lace insertion flowing onto the skirt, with entredeux stitching and hand-embroidered roses adding just the right accent.  Puffed sleeves with more entredeux stitching and embroidery have cuffs of Swiss embroidered insertion.  Edging lace finishes the cuffs, neckline, and hem.  Both dresses button all the way down the back.
