Paragraph 112. In sewing lace to the edge of material, it is overhanded or whipped on to make it lie flat on the edge of the material.
To sew on the lace, lay the edge parallel with the edge of the material with the lace toward you, and overhand the two edges together. See Figure 11. Full the lace slightly as you sew by pushing it toward the needle with the thumb. Lace is overhanded on the edge of handkerchiefs, underwear, sleeves, or any place where lace is used for trimming.
