What it is: Basically a cord wrapped in bias tape placed in the seam between two of your fabric pieces. You can make your own by combining those two elements, or by pre-made bias tape.

Uses: Piping is seen most commonly on things like slipcovers, bags, and other non-wearable fashions. However, many old-fashioned patterns as well as some fresher looks use piping around the collar or to add decorative details.

    To make your own piping from the fashion fabric and to ensure it is uniform and perfectly smooth after sewing to your garment or project, cut your bias at least an inch wider and press while stretching. You can then insert the cording, baste stitch and trim to the desired width. It will look as smooth as any from Dior, Chanel, etc. when you apply it to your project. This prevents the “fat and thin” appearance after inserting.
