In today's video, I show how to finish a neckline or armhole using bias tape to create a facing that is flat and won't peek out on the right side of the garment. Bias facing can be used to finish the raw edge a neckline, armhole or even a hem. This is a technique that is commonly used in a lot of garments including my Lou Box Top pattern so it’s a great method to practice and perfect. The benefit to bias facing over a traditional facing is that it has less bulk and if you have particularly thin fabric, it won’t create a ridge under your garment at the end of the facing.
If you want to learn more about bias facings I have a couple of sewalong posts that you might find helpful. Check them out here and here. I really hope that you enjoy this video and that it helps make your sewing adventures easier and more fun. If you haven’t started following my on YouTube yet, I would be so honored if you do so.
