Uses: This stitch can be very time consuming, so it is best used for seams that will be seen, such as the seams on the inside of a jacket that will be exposed when you set it over a chair or hang it up.

Notes: Consider using a coordinating color for your bias tape, or making your own out of a fun print.

    I may just be confused..but isn’t it just a bias bound seam if it contrasts the fabric? Again, I may be confused, but I thought it was only a Hong Kong if you are using the same fabric.

      hmmm interesting question. i did a little research and it looks like the difference is that bound edges are just bias tape folded over the raw edge and sewn once through both sides (, whereas the hong kong finish uses the slightly more time-comusing technique above.
