Hello from a long time lurker! So, this is my first time posting, and actually, first time I've made anything that I may consider wearing outside of my house.


yes...quite wrinkly  Sad

Close-up of the first time I've ever bias-taped anything. Oh, and close up of an old PSAT booklet.
Thanks for reading!

The colours are so fresh and spring-like.  Did you draft the pattern?

I've never used bias tape on clothing... i know with quilting you use bias tape/binding to keep everything together... to hid unfinished ends and stuff like that.. is it the same for clothing?

Great fabric and congratulations on your first item of clothing!  I'm a big fan of bias tape - don't know what i'd do without it!  Its so much easier that messing around with facings etc.  good job  Smiley

Conrats-looks good, and very spring-y!

I love bias tape.  My MIL gave me a box, and a mean a box, load of it.  All different colors, all arranged according to shade.  She has accumulated it over the last 30 years or so. I am one lucky luck girl. Grin
