Lesson 4: Finishing Details Take Projects from Decent to Great

Little details can make all of the difference in projects.  Sometimes the addition of bias tape, piping or pleats can take an item to a new level.

This really basic jacket for a newborn out of the One Yard Wonders book looks far more finished with the addition of bias tape.

The opposing lines and bias edging on this skirt give it a completely different look than a solid fabric would.

I was so obsessed with lining up the lines on the skirt

I learned how to make bias tape, how to apply it, how to make pleats and how to line a garment from sewing patterns with those details in them.
