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 (http://www.sewingsupport.com/bound-seam-finish.html), whereas the hong kong finish uses the slightly more time-comusing technique above.
