Watch and Learn Grasshopper - How to make piping outfits
I woke up this morning thinking that it is a fine day to write about how to make piping at home!
So, what t is a piped bias one may ask… Hmm, think about the boring pillow and cushion covers… Not a very inspiring example isn’t it? :P
Well, let me tell you, by using the right combinations it becomes a very cool sewing technique that turns an ordinary pattern into a chic outfit. And the good part is… it’s quite easy to do!
Some examples of piped bias / piping dresses:

SEWING AN EASY LACE DRESS
This was a project that I’ve been dying to start for a very long time. I have made a skirt version of it some time ago.
(for investigative personalities it is Lace Skirt, I did it!)
While the workload gets more and more, I had been daydreaming about my new sewing project for days. I then decided to make a lace dress since - I assumed - it would finish in a very short time.
I was right. I finished sewing this dress in 30 minutes! Sewing a lace dress was indeed easy, but you have to be very careful in styling it; ‘cause you may end up looking as if you wrapped around your curtain before going out! :P The pattern I used for this dress was from BurdaStyle Magazine issue 03/2012 no. 102. The only alteration I made was reducing the size of front and back patterns from the middle ‘cause it’s quite a loose cut pattern.

- any matching piece of fabric you’d like to use - make sure it’s a lightweight fabric
- and high spirits!
