{bias neck binding}

Today's Tutorial is applying the bias neck binding to the smocked bishop dress. I decided to make video tutorials for this lesson for a couple of reasons. One reason was that it would have taken too many pictures and would have made for a super long journal entry. My other reason, and really more-so my main reason is that a lot of people seem to have trouble with attaching a bias neck binding. I think a video tutorial makes it easier for you to learn, as you not only get to see pictures but you get to hear me losing my train of thought often explaining each step along the way. Once you complete this tutorial, your bias neck binding should turn out like mine. The goal in this tutorial is to stitch the bias neck binding evenly and right above the top row of smocking stitches.

This lesson is split into two videos that are approx. 10 mins each.

Part One

Part Two

Please let me know if you have any questions or if anything wasn't clear to you in this tutorial. Thanks so much for following my blog and especially for all the wonderful comments have gotten from this lesson series!

Hello, I are Japanese.
I am not prosperous in much smocking embroidery in Japan.

I always refer to an overseas site and book.
Your animation is very plain and is splendid.
However, as for me, English is not 100%.

I want to know professional explanation in detail.

Please teach it about a lot more designs.
