276. Hemstitching Underclothing
Hemstitching forms a dainty finish for
the household linen and underclothing, but the busy woman often will not
undertake it because of the difficulty of drawing the threads. If a piece
of white soap be rubbed on the underside of the cloth, where the
hemstitching is to be done, the threads may be drawn with ease, in half
the time that is usually required.
