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
