For bias tape, use store bought tape or tape you’ve made. Either way, it should be wide enough to encase the cord and leave enough fabric to be sewn into the garment’s seam allowance.
For this tutorial, this cord is 1/8″ wide. Th bias tape needs a seam allowance of 5/8".
To ensure the tape is wide enough, double the width of the cord (2 x 1/8″) and double the seam allowance (2 x 5/8″). Added together, the total amount is 1 1/2″ for the width of this bias tape. For your custom bias tape, follow this little math equation:
(2 x cord width = _____ ) + (2 x seam allowance = _____ ) = total width of the bias tape.
Note: If the final seam allowance is a little short, don’t worry! Simply mark the seam allowance line on your garment and match up the finished piping by pinning in place.
