Coming up with a great layout takes time and patience. If you need help for your trim layout, I suggest pulling inspiration from magazines, or online.

Once you have a solid idea of your layout, you can start picking out the trim that you feel would work best for your look. I listed everything I used above, so take a look and see what catches your eye!

I started by sewing the small metal chain around the area I wanted to outline. Once you have an outline, you can see what areas you would like to fill in.

Using a zipper foot attachment, I was able to sew my trim tape close to the chain detail.

As you build on the design, you can use your fabric pencil to mark where you want to put your trim. This will help you evenly place all of your trim.

I used a mix of heat transferable appliques and sew on trim. For the heat transfer trim, make sure to press on with high heat and use a pressing cloth.

Now your look should be coming together nicely! Don’t worry about adding too much! In this instance, more is great! Try adding an applique on the shoulder or cut them and use it to fill in spaces like I did!

Take your time and be creative! You’ll be surprised at what you can achieve. A little trim goes a long way!
