Bias binding is a nice, tidy finish for the raw edges of a garment.

Binding of armholes and necklines are the most common uses of these versatile tapes. Nevertheless, you can also bind the edges of pockets, bags, skirt and shirt hems, slits of blouses – mostly in a contrasting or complimentary colors so that they stand out.

Bias tape can be easily made at home (fabric strip must be cut 45 degrees to the selvedge), or you can purchase it pre-made. Eitherway, the stitching methods are the same.

There are two ways to finish the bias binding. Method one in our tutorial is the Visible binding. That is when your tape 'hugs' your fabric, so it's visible at both inner and outer sides.
