Several weeks ago, my dear friend, Sara Norris, requested that I work up a tutorial on bishops in dealing with those nasty bumps that result from the sleeve seams when you pleat up a bishop. I guess I never really thought too much about it, because I rarely deal with those nasty bumps! I have a trick tho, that I have used for years that results in a "no bump bishop". Since I had to pleat up a bishop for a customer today, I thought I would work up a tutorial and show you my easy little trick.
The fabric: Dottie White with Black Dots
The Pleater: Sally Stanley
The Goal: No bumps on the seam lines!
My pointer is showing you where my seam is.
Can you see a bump? I don't think so!
How'd I do that? Keep reading!
My bishop is pleated and I have it on
the blocking board. The pin is set on the
armhole seam and the pointer is showing
where that seam is. Can you see a bump?
I don't think so! So, how did I do that?
My 'no bump bishop' is ready to smock!
So are you ready to find out how I
accomplished an invisible seam, resulting
in a "no bump bishop"?
