#3: Attaching Bias Tape

A nice crisp bias tape is a quick solution for many raw edges outside and inside a garment. I usually make my bias tape from a contrasting fabric to add a punch of color; especially when using bias tape to finish seams inside an unlined jacket.


Step #1: Open double fold bias tape and place right side of bias tape on wrong side of fabric, aligning raw edges. Sew at 1/4" seam allowance.

Step #2: Trim seam allowance if necessary and fold bias tape to front of fabric edge.

Step #3: Carefully edgestitch bias tape and you're done. Remember to use a slightly longer stitch length for edgestitch to look straight.

And that concludes my three tips for three years of blogging. 

Wherever your heart leads you in life I sincerely wish you a wonderful journey.
And I hope fashion, fabrics and fun are part of the trip.
