I love the look of a single layer of tulle for an edge. It can be used on cami necklines, cuffs, cardigans, hems. I thought I would share my process on a recent test strip for a tank top I’m making.
I sandwiched the 1″ tulle strip between the fabric face and a silk chiffon bias folded in half.
Next trim away the seam allowance for a low bulk finish.
Press the silk chiffon bias down towards the wrong side of the fabric, leaving the tulle band flat against the ironing board.
Topstitch the binding to the inside at 1/4″ from the seam. Such a sweet and neat finish.
Perhaps I can incorporate it into my lingerie dream projects, since I recently received my vintage 1970′s copy of the “Kwik-Sew Method for Sewing Lingerie” from Amazon.
