    chiffon along the border

    Hi,

    Is ''My friend's frock has chiffon along the border'' correct? What other words can be used in place of ''along''?

    Re: chiffon along the border

    When you say border are you referring to the bottom hemline?

    Oh! Well "along" works.

    Re: chiffon along the border

    I would keep "along" but change "border" to "neckline".

    My friend's frock has lace along the neckline.


    You could also say "My friend's frock has lace at the neckline."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
