I'm making a fitted shirt with light weight twill. I want to make some piping to accent the panels of the shirt. I know piping needs to be on the bias, but if I'm using a mildly stretchy fabric (stretch twill) does this rule still apply?


Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Piping doesn't nessesarily need to be bias.  If the seams you are inserting it in are fairly straight you can use staight fabric.  You only really need bias when you are going around curves.  So I think you should be fine.
