FAQ: How To Sew Bias Tape On A Back Of Fleece Neckline Jacket?

How To Sew a Bias Tape Neckline

The key to sewing a bias tape neckline is using the right kind of bias tape, pressing after each step, understitching, and shaping the bias tape to the neckline curve with your fingers, which I’ll show you how to do in this tutorial.

Before you start

Bias tape can be purchased or made from scratch; the narrower the bias tape, the easier it is to achieve a flat neckline; for this tutorial, I made things difficult for myself by using a medium weight tape for a lightweight fabric.

What you need

Step 275-80 cm bias tape is up to 80 cm thick, or 1cm thick, depending on the neckline, for an extra layer of tape on the back of your neck.

Step 1: First seam

Position the bias tape on the right side of the fabric, at the center back of the neckline (indicated by the pen mark), so that the crease of the opened side is a 3/8u2033 (1 cm) from the raw edge. Pin bias tape to the fabric and position it as you sew.

Step 2: Understitching

Understitching is a line of straight stitching sewn just beyond the seam line of two pieces that have been sewn together to keep the neckline edge sharp and clean. To keep the bias tape from rolling to the outside, understitch it to the seam allowance.

Step 3: Shaping

The difference between a flat bias neckline and one that stands away from the body is bias tape, which is shaped to match the neckline curves by stretching the outer edge of the bias tape. The video below shows how I shape the bias tape.

What is the difference between bias tape and binding?

To begin, what is the difference between bias tape, bias binding, and bias facing? Bias tape is a bias-cut strip of fabric (or several strips sewn together) with two edges turned and pressed to meet in the middle. Bias binding is when bias tape is used to enclose the raw edge of a neckline, armhole, or hem.

Fold the bias tape back up over the seam and flip it over to encase the unfinished edge. Open up the double-fold bias tape all the way and find the narrower side. Pin the bias tape edges to the raw edges of the fabric, right sides together. Sew the bias tape in place along the fold.

How do you make 1/2 inch bias tape?

Cut the strips 4 times the width of the bias tape maker (for a 1/2 inch (12mm) bias tape maker, cut the strips 2 inches wide). Once you have single fold bias tape, fold the tape in half so one side is just wider than the other.
