How to sew the Valley jumpsuit bias binding

list In Tutorials On

In this tutorial I will show you how to sew a flat bias binding for the Valley jumpsuit. Applying bias binding can take a bit of practice, as it can be rippled or not lay flat. The key to a good bias finish is understiching and pressing! You can use this method to finish armholes or necklines or a loose hem. To start, make your bias band, measure your neckline and cut a biais about 1cm longer and 2,8 cm large.

1: Align and pin the bias band around the neckline. Slighlty strech the band as you pin.

2: Stitch the bias band using a 7 mm seam allowance (the width of your presser foot).

3: Trim the bias seam allowance. This will reduce bulk and create a better looking neckline. It's optional if your fabric is light weight and essential is your fabric is heavy weight.

4: Press the seam allowance and the binding up away from the garment.

5: Understitch through the binding and seam allowance 2 mm from the seam line. Understitching will help to force the seam line to the wrong side of the garment so that you can’t see it from the right side.

6: Press the binding to the wrong side of the garment.

7: Fold the seam allowance towards the inside of the garment and press.

8: Hide the raw edge of the binding under to meet the fold line. Pin.9: Make sure the width of the biais binding is even and press.

10: Stitch the neckline binding down. 2mm from the loose edge.

Give your neckline a good press and voilà!
