Video: How to Set Fabric on the Bias

Evamarie Gomez and Gary Junken

While on the road at the 2015 American Sewing Expo (ASE), we caught up with Threads author and co-author of Bias Cut Blueprints, Julianne Bramson. In this how-to video, Julianne shows you an expert method for setting fabric on the bias. Understanding the grain is crucial when planning garments and laying out fabric. Use this technique to create bias scarves and skirts from fabric tubes.

    Brilliance made actionable! Bias made accessible.

    Bramson is well-received by test audiences, time to give her mutli-episode installments (where she creates different garments with the tubes).

    Evmez, you continue to discover talent which delivers; apply your vision and create a new star (just in time for the new year, and in a genre which intrigues but hasn't been able to pull in the audiences, until now!).

    If there's one thing you've done right all along, it's this, "Build the brand, feed the legacy.".

    Refined boldness has always been your calling card, why waiver now?

    One of your many man fans

    Thank you, Julianne! You have cleared up the mystery of making a bias tube for me. Your clear explanation and demonstration have demystified this once complicated technique to me. Now I won't have to sit and sew numerous bias strips together to make bias tape.
