Bias Tape Tutorial

Bias tape is a pet peeve of mine. When I see people topstitch it, I mentally scream because it can look so much better with just one more stitch!

So I thought, might as well make my own tutorial - Especially since I do things a bit differently than the methods I've found on the internet; much faster, and just as accurate, with enough practice.

[edit] Oops. When I say stay stitching I mean slip stitching. been stalking a certain cosplayer's blog ahaha.

So, how am I supposed to work single fold bias tape?
KakeranoTsuki's avatar
You can only topstitch it, to the best of my knowledge. I've never actually used single fold, but there should be plenty of info if you google it. =)

Are going to be cosplaying as Date Masasume? :la:

I never realized how much math was involved for sewing. :o
KakeranoTsuki's avatar
Oh lol, no. xD; It's a commission for a friend. I was going to but I lost interest after the anime ended. "OTL

I know right? D: And circle skirts are even more ridiculously mathy.

I still need to watch it...though I think I'd like the original games better...to bad I don't know Japanese. OTL
I heard there's suppose to be a season 2 coming this spring. xDD

You mean it gets worse. DDDDDDDDD:
Guess it puts more appreciation to the people that make clothing. xD
KakeranoTsuki's avatar
Haha, yeah, the games look awesome, especially since it reminds me of one huge crack-filled DBZ battle. xD The anime's still pretty damn awesome, though.

Lol, it really does. I never realized how much work went into clothes until I started cos. D:

If you still find it confusing, just come to Erisa's when I explain it to her irl. xD;;
