Single-fold Neck & Armhole Bias Binding

Single-fold Neck & Armhole Bias Binding

Learn how to plan and sew a ¼” (6mm) wide single-fold bias binding to the neckline and armhole of a blouse. We will teach you how to measure and prepare your bias binding strips and then how to control the bias strips, as you ‘walk’ them into the neckline and armhole. You will also learn how to machine-stitch the bindings to the blouse and then how to finish them using a slip stitch.

MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep

Step Description
1A For this lesson, we have prepared a sleeveless and collarless muslin blouse.
1B We have machine-stitched the darts closed and have sewn the left and right shoulder seams together.
2 Begin by placing the wrong side of the blouse face-up on the table. Since the bias binding will be folded over the raw edge of the armhole to create the finished edge, we will begin by marking the ½” (1.3cm) stitching line on the seam allowance in red pencil, so that we can later cut it away.
