There are lots of great tutorials out there for working with bias binding. One of my favorite ways of using bias binding on a neckline or an armhole is doing the french bias binding method. In this method, the bias strip (usually 2" wide) is folded in half when attached and therefore a double thickness of fabric.

There are two ways to attach the binding:

1) Topstitch or blind slip stitch from the front

2) Stitch in the Ditch from the front

I'm going to show you how to do the topstitching method and then explain the stitch in the ditch method!

Technique Materials

raw edge of garment to bind like a neckline, armsyce, or even a hem

2" wide bias tape (purchased or made by hand)

    This is going to be a whole new and different experience to you. I am sure not a lot of people are known about this method and for the same reason it will obviously be a challenge to play around with. cox internet plans
