A quick post to share an article I wrote in this month’s issue of Seamwork Magazine! It’s called “Learning Curves: A Guide to Bias Binding”. I discuss the principles of bias, how to make your own couture-quality bias tape, and how to add double fold bias tape to a curved edge without getting a wonky inconsistent finish.
Bias is a bit magic! Understanding its properties and taking a few extra steps I rarely see mentioned in other tutorials can create professional finishes that are a joy to sew and to wear.
