What is a fabric trim?

It's something to adorn the fabric with, such as a border, a contrasting motif, or something similar. Fabric trims are decorative elements that provide a special touch to your sewing. They elevate the quality of your finished clothing and accessories.

Let's take a look at some of the most popular trims:
