It is probably a serged edge and the white is the thread Smiley

In my opinion I would just sew the striping that way. They make ribbing and sweater knit to match... It is probably easier to find someone who can sew it this way rather than print it.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: T-shirt Alteration Help Greatly Appreciated - Neckline Too Big on: February 29, 2012 05:48:26 AM
 You might be able to take it in on the top seam of the shoulder. I used to do several shirt alterations like this for a lady who liked higher necklines.

Turn the shirt right side out, smooth seam at the top of the shoulder. Mark 1" down from old seam line and taper out to the sleeve area.

Keep in mind that this does lengthen the shoulder seam but depending on the sleeve type/shoulder type it may not be an issue.

Silky fabrics have such personality... I find that the  sewing direction makes a huuuuuge difference in the finished seam. Hanging cut pieces for a day before sewing can help with hemming too.

These ruffles are actually called flounces Smiley Instead of being a straight cut and gathered strip like a regular ruffle it is actually a circular cut strip or a spiral. This dress appears to be a spiral cut flounce for sure!

I would do an a line base for this dress.
