Inspirational Details: Bias Bands
How fun are these bias stripes? You can make your own with this tutorial or use purchased bias tape. Or you could even use a pretty ribbon!
For this detail, I sewed the bias strips across the chest before I sewed the front bodice to the rest of the dress. This way I could sew it easily, without the rest of the garment getting in the way. You can pin or use a washable tape to keep the bias tape in place. It’s up to you as to how many bias strips you want, the color, etc.! I really like the graduated colors on this bodice. It would also look really pretty if you did the same thing along the hem of the skirt.
What do you think? Is this something you would do? Does it give you any good ideas? I really like the simplicity of this and how easy it is to do. I might use it on my next sewing project!
