Sewing Tutorial: Bias Binding on Curved Edge (Sew in the Ditch)

Updated: May 29, 2020

This is another application of bias to curved edges, however there will not be any topstitching shown on the right side of the project (see here).

Most of my students tend to find it a little harder to master, but i do think it’s good to have this in your sewing repertoire. It’s very satisfying to see the stitches concealed in the ditch especially when a matching thread is used.

In this demonstration, contrast thread has been used. For your project you may use a matching thread for a more inconspicuous look.
