I myself sewed sails. Before you cut the sail cut lines rubbed nitrocellon. I stick the tape to a machine that served me as distance. I have already applied a sewn stitch distance. Batiste is so thin glimpses of red tape. Around Sail rope I glued to the glue bookbinding. That's all. Fast and simply metod. Bookbinding glue leaves no traces. In the corners I came only stich the line because pofiling and mounting could detachment of the rope.
