This is my very first time to participate in a blog tour and I'm excited to be here and so glad you could join me. I'm bringing to you a bias tape hack for the full placket, drawstring casing, drawstring, and collar. This hack is more due to my penchant for time saving (aka laziness) than anything else, and is so simple. All I used was 1 package each of 7/8 inch and 1/2 inch double fold bias tape in a coordinating color. So, without further ado, let's get started...
The Full PlacketFor this step you will need the 7/8 inch wide double fold bias tape. I found mine at my local JoAnn Fabrics.
The Drawstring CasingFor this step you will need the 1/2" bias tape. Measure and cut a length that will extend from one edge of your project to the other along the marks you transferred from the bodice pattern pieces to your fabric.
The DrawstringYou will again be using the 1/2" double fold bias tape. Measure out a length per the cut list located in the tutorial, then proceed to Step 5 of Creating a Drawstring. Even easier peasier!
The CollarFor the collar you will again need the 7/8" wide bias tape.
1. Measure out the length you will need against your garment neckline + 1" for seam allowance.
2. Unfold the tape at the center fold and refold with right sides together.
3. Stitch one short edge at 1/2" seam allowance and trim to 1/8".
