how to make and sew your own bias tape
For me the inside of a homemade garment is just as impotent as the outside. Every piece of clothes I make is a love letter for my self. And when i take a homemade piece of garment on and see a beautiful made inside it just makes me happy and proud. That is why I always do something special with my hemlines and here is one more. This one I often use for jackets, wool dresses and skirts.
