Summer Top Sew Along Day 6: Bias Binding and Hemming

Today is the fiddliest bit about this top, attaching the bias binding.

The pattern instructions for this are very clear so I would go to page 7 of the instructions and follow them as printed.

Here are a few pictures of the process, this was my neck, you will need to do the arm holes as well:

Pin bias tape to the wrong side of top leaving a 'tail':

Sew along fold in tape - should be 1/4 inch:

Leave a tail at the end as well:

Pinch tails together to see where to sew:

Sew ends of tape together:

Fold tape over to right side of top:

Press then sew along the edge of the tape:


Now on to the final stage, hemming.

First turn up 1cm along then bottom of the top and press in place.

Then turn another 2cm and press.

Now, sew 1.5cm from the bottom of the top and you are done!!

I would love to see photos of any finished tops so I can share them here.  I hope you have enjoyed this sew along - what shall we do next?!
