The Hong Kong binding seam finish encloses the raw edges of the seams inside strips of bias. Both sides of the seam require two passes to sew the bias, and because it is so labor-intensive, it is mostly used in very high-end clothes. This method is especially suitable for heavy fabrics and for summer garments that you wouldn’t want to line.

Technique Materials

A nice, unlined garment that you would like to have beautifully finished seams, a matching (or contrasting) fabric of a lighter weight to cut the bias from OR store-bought bias tape.
