As part of my design for one of the garments in my first collection, I incorporate small round openings into stretch fabric (two zippers arrive at the openings). I am looking for suggestions for how best to finish the edges of these openings. My first thought is to use piping – I want the opening to have a strong shape with a well demarcated edge, and I’m worried that binding tape will be hard to shape around a small circular opening (about 2 inches across). I also need to make lots of these and, eventually, give it over to a contract, so I want a method that is relatively quick and easily repeatable. Cover stitch may be another option (I would need to buy a machine for it, though) – but I’m not sure that a cover stitch will easily curve in such a tight manner.
