Inset Corners with Bias Seams | Video
Sewing inset corners is always a challenge. It’s even more difficult to achieve a satisfactory result when you’re working with seams on the bias grain and with delicate or unstable fabrics.

Threads Contributing Editor Susan Khalje specializes in bridal sewing, and has constructed many of these bodices through the course of her career. In this video, she demonstrates her method for stabilizing the seamlines, clipping, pinning, and joining the garment sections in a seam that comes to a sharp and pucker-free point.
