If that was not clear .
I am creating a girl's top that has a *faux* wrap front. The wrap
part seams to the side according to the instructions.
pattern neue mode 55535
However, I want to trim the edge of that faux wrap/flap with some
bias binding (call is personalized styling).
Is there a proper or best way to accomplish this modification ? I
would appreciate some ideas on how to do this ?
I thought maybe i could add a little extra width to that side
seam and then add the bias binding on top of a fold in the
fabric which would leave maybe a seam allowance and a bit hanging
out of the bias binding ont the back side then i could seam that
to the side of the dress ? but that sounds a bit dodgy and it
might pull up ( in my rank amateur sewing knowledge).
Simpler idea could be to bias bind the wrap edge (at the seam
allowance) then sew a strip of fabric down the back of that edge
with a *stitch in the ditch* next to the binding. Then seam to
that extra added bit of fabric ? again sounds dodgy ?
anyways you can see how/why i am stuck for a solution.
Thanks for any helpful replies,
