Cut a piece of 3/4"-wide satin ribbon and a piece of flat lace the width of the camisole band. Stitch the ribbon to the bottom of the band using stitch no.11 (feather stitch). 6. Stitch the lace to the bottom of the ribbon with a zigzag stitch. 7. Stitch the remaining edge of the lace to the camisole top with a zigzag stitch. 8.
