    My Grandmother did this and edged pillowcases. I love rick rack -- it gives me a warm feeling when I see it trimming something.

    It depends how it is used. Made some skirts for my granddaughters and it was darling on there. Certain patterns it can really embellish, just depends.

    When I see rick rack I think of the Lanz dressed that were popular in the early 60's. I couldn't afford one, but found a similar floral stripe fabric, trimmed it with white rick rack and made my own. Friends thought it was the real thing.
