A lot of patterns will use bias tape on the neckline. You can also use this technique other places as well. Single fold bias tape does not show on the outside of the garment, but it may sometimes be visible as you move, so pick a matching or neutral color.

I couldn't find any videos or resources about single fold, so I took pictures as I went and will try to explain.

Technique Materials

Single fold bias tape, pins, ruler, iron, scissors.

    Great photo – Maybe add the other steps as a new Learning step. I will be waiting for the rest of the steps – very informative.

      Yes, I’ll try re-uploading it. (right now I think my pictures on on the other computer) I tested it out and it looked like it may work. If not, I’ll get the pictures up somehow!

    I still can’t understand how to sew the oher side once you finish this side (the one side shown in picture above). It must be seen from outside, or that won’t be a problem at all?

      I’m going to try to re-upload it since I can’t edit it at all.

      You fold it under and you’ll have a stitch line showing, but that’s it. Sometimes it peeks out the sides, but in general, it’s all good!

      It didn’t publish the one step it let me add originally, and it won’t edit anything but the intro page.
