Curly/lettuce edges - Sharp edges
I am trying to make curly/lettuce effect on the hem.
I have tried to follow different tutorials, but I fell like my result gets very sharp at the edges.
How can I improve this?
Settings for hem:
Settings for internal line 15 mm from edges:
Settings for simulation:
The tutorials I have followed:

First. I would say from the first image that you are not using a particle low enough to accommodate for the geometry that is needed for small curves. Try lowering the particle distance to 5 mm and test.
I managed to get this look by cutting and sewing a very small strip of 5 mm on the edge, then making the sewing line intensity to 0 so it does not seem sewn, and then going to the edge strip pattern piece weft and increase it to 130%. That way the edge will be bigger than the skirt and make it curve.1
Thank you for the feedback Pablo Quintana.
I had used a particle distance at 5 mm. It is children's wear so I don't know if that is why it still looked to high.
I have done as you suggested and cut the a small piece at the edges. I have used a particle distance at 1 mm for the small piece and 3 mm for the rest of the sleeve. I am already much happier with the result. Thank you!0
