This instructional exercise is about bias binding, what it is, the reason it’s exceptional and how to make your own. So what is bias binding? For those of you who do not have the foggiest idea or are new to corset making, bias binding is the strip like binding that runs along the top and base edge of most expertly completed corsets.
Bias binding is, as you’ve most likely speculated, cut on the bias. The ‘bias’ just methods across the grain of the texture either from left down to right or directly down to left corner to corner at a 45 degree edge. Being cut on the corner to corner like this gives the binding unique properties contrasted with a typical lace or a portion of texture cut on the grain or across the grain. Bias binding can stretch or bend with the bended edge of the corset without wrinkling (in a specific way at any rate – if the bend is outrageous there will be some wrinkling). Frequently on cheap corsets the top and base edge is bound with plain strip which puckers and wrinkles, the more you work with bias binding the more you’ll see this kind of thing on seriously made pieces of clothing.
You can buy Biaisband in for all intents and purposes all sewing shops and online. It comes in all hues and is regularly made of a sparkling silk or cotton. So why make your own? Well when you have a designed or lavish texture its regularly elusive the perfect shading or texture binding and utilizing one that simply does not exactly look right can diminish the expert look of your corset and bring down such difficult work. Try not to misunderstand me, show purchased binding looks extraordinary against most textures and it’s frequently pleasant to have a differentiating texture or shading binding to your fundamental texture. Be that as it may, for those events when you cannot locate the correct match its consoling to realize how to make your own out of the texture you’re sewing your corset from.
First you will require a decent half meter of your picked texture, a 45 degree point (you get one of these as a plastic triangle in a children maths set or you could Google it and print off a paper one), a couple of texture scissors and an iron for pressing in the folds.
Start in a top corner and utilizing your 45 degree point draw a line down at 45 degrees from the edge, presently choose how wide you need your binding to be. On the off chance that you need it little, state a large portion of a centimeter you’ll be cutting strips 2cm wide, for a 1cm binding you’ll require 4cm strips. When estimating the width do not gauge straight down the grain line yet vertically down at 90 degrees from the line you’ve quite recently drawn. At the point when you’ve drawn out the entirety of your lines cut your texture strips out and sew them together. Do this by assembling right sides and sewing along the askew edge leaving a 5mm crease recompense, at that point opening out into one long strip and squeezing the crease level. Wrap up by cutting any crease stipend that distends over the edge of the strip.
