does anyone know how to sew cording under fabric to create rows? Ok, I know that sucks as a description but maybe a photo will show it better.....(below) I'm not referring to the gold cording on the top, but how it is the rows under the black fabric were done. I also had seen this method used on project runway (maybe seson 3-5?), sheesh I cannot find a photo for the life of me but it was a gown (goldish-bronze) and with rows (cords) done using this method for detail on the bodice.... you remember? right? ;0)  
Any help would be great, or if you could even tell me what the "techincal" term is for this I'll google and research myself.
Happy Saturday!

You might try researching "double piping."

Thanks BT for the suggestion. I looked through one of my sewing books and found something that I think MIGHT do the trick. I'm going to give it a shot ans see how things turn out.

Um yeah.. and if anyone else would like to know how to do something like this with cording/piping... you can check it on this link, an excerpt I found on the net from my book at home...

I didn't really read the link, but it looked good.

I'll just add that a "piping foot" makes it that much easier to do it. I'm not really all about getting a specific foot for every little thing, but I do like this one.
