In preparation for the release of our latest Tessuti Pattern - "Valerie Top". I thought I'd post a step-by-step tutorial on how to sew and join together bias binding.
This tutorial is included in the sewing instructions, but here I've added extra images and you can see them in colour. Click on any of these photos for more detail.
In our latest patterns we've recommended using a double fold bias binding (cut in self fabric). This is similar to double-fold french binding that is used to bind quilts, but for garments the binding is much narrower. Obviously this sort of bias binding sewn on the double, only works in finer fabrics like lightweight cottons, linens, silks etc. I love this method of binding, it's easier and gives a nicer finish. It can be used for narrower inside edge binding (as shown here) or for wider bindings to edge both the inner and outer garment.
