Time: Fast, ~15 minutes to finish neck and arm openings
Material: 1/4" or 1/2" single fold bias tape in a color close to your garment
Unfold the right edge of your bias tape and align the tape's edge with your fabric's edge.
Sew right along the groove of the bias tape fold.
Flip over your fabric so that you see the right side like the left picture. Fold your bias strip under your fabric.
Sew a row of stitching to secure your bias tape under your fabric and encase your raw edges.
Voila! Raw edges no more!
- Inexpensive to purchase and easy to use
- Does not use up any additional fabric
- Leaves a visible line of stitching on the outside of your garment
I'll cover facings in a future post. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments :)
