A fast and easy finishing technique for armscyes, necklines and hems is
reinforcing them with a bias strip or bias tape. The
biastape is available at Your local fabric-store, it
comes to You pre- cut, fold and pressed and it´s
available in many different colours and materials.
A bias strip is cut on the true bias. This is the 45°
angle of each fabric. Along the grainline fabric is
stable and has it´s best tearing attribute, it can hardly
be stretched out of style along this direction. Different
to this is the bias, it can be stretched and shaped
because it is an instable direction of each fabric.
