Frayed Edges

This video was recorded using the 2020 September Edition.

Here are three examples of adding frayed edges as shown in the video.

  • Example One

    Adding a regular frayed edge.

    1. You need a seamless tile image of the frayed edge. This can be acquired by scanning the frayed edge effect or by using an image available online.

    2. The image must be cleaned up and have a transparent background.

    3. Apply the image onto the garment as an edge assignable trim.

    4. Enable Hide Background.

  • Example Two

    Adding an irregular frayed edge that cuts into the garment.

    1. You need a seamless tile image of the frayed edge. This can be acquired by scanning the frayed edge effect or by using an image available online.

    2. The image must be cleaned up and have a transparent background.

    3. If the frayed effect is to be more irregular, the image must be much longer. In addition, use external image editing software like Photoshop to add more variation to the effects.

    4. If the effect cuts into the garment, create cut marks using the Pen tool to trace out the frayed area of the edge. Then, apply a transparent fabric to the bottom of part of the garment.

  • Example Three

    1. Extract a pattern from the edge of the pattern and stitch the new pattern to the edge of the pattern. The new pattern piece must be transparent.

    2. Add an internal line on the new pattern.

    3. Apply the frayed effect on the internal line.

    4. Using the cursor, adjust the internal line as needed.

    5. Use the 3D window to gauge the position and placement of the effect.

In all three examples, to remove any floating lines from the edges, the following is done:

  • The edge's Stitch Construction is changed to Flat

  • The edge's Finish Effect is set to None
