It's been a long journey, but we are getting very close to finishing up this lesson series! First and foremost I want you to know that I most certainly don't think of myself as a professional. I love to sew and I love to share what I know with others. My hope is that you can gain a little something from what I have taught in my tutorials and apply it to your sewing. If you are new to my blog, please click on the tab at the top of this blog to go to the Smocked Bishop Tutorials - all the lessons are there.
Before I continue with my french seam tutorial, I wanted to revisit the neck binding for a third time. Sometimes it's very difficult to gauge size when you are looking at a picture on a blog. In my past two journal entries, I have demonstrated two different ways to sew the bias neck binding. I want you to know that I try to keep my neck binding as small as possible - no more than 1/4 of an inch wide. Below are two pictures of both of the ways that I showed how to do a neck binding - one on the machine and the other using a serger. I have included a seam gauge in the picture so that you can better see how small my neck bindings are.
