Great instruction. Should the bias tape be pre-shunk? If I were assembling a simple, unlined jacket using encased seams, how do I handle the bulk at the underarm seam?
For those wanting to encase the edge of a quilted fabric, this method "may" work, but it is difficult. The two step method works better for bulky fabric edges.
Nice video, thanks! I use binding when making baby bibs, kitchen accessories and appreciate you mentioning about not putting the seam RIGHT on the edge of the binding. I always thought I'm supposed to do it that way and I nearly always have to go back over and cover with a nice little zigzag stitch to cover where I missed (even with a binding foot I bought, geeez)...but you mentioned NOT to go for sewing it right on the edge...interesting, I'm going to try that and see if that helps - thank you! ps...GREAT quality video btw..audio was superb, too!
She explained this very nicely. A Hong Kong seam finish makes an unlined garment look so very professional. I find using silk creates less bulk, but using bias tape or silk makes for a beautifully finished garment.
Why would you encase a seam? I like to open up seams and iron them flat. Wouldn'ty encasing them add bulk tot he item?
I have been sewing for years and recall being taught how to use bias tape
