Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same thread for the needle and bobbin.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.
Make sure you use a sharp needle.

Embroider the blouse with the polyester or rayon embroidery threads. Embroider the ruffles with 50- or 60-weight cotton embroidery thread. It's possible to embroider the ruffle with polyester or rayon. However, in this case, you should use a 40- or 50-weight bobbin thread with a matching color that does NOT have a sheer finish. Cotton or spun polyester (with a matte finish) may be suitable.
