I am very frustrated with applying crosswise cut knit bindings to a knit. I keep getting rippling and stretching out of shape. What can I do to get things to lie flat?
I made dress 116 from Burda Kids Spring 2004 – a halter dress with binding straps. It lies flat in front but stretched out of shape on the back. Is there anything I can do to fix this? How could I have prevented it? Help.
The binding is a double fold strip of crossgrain knit applied in one pass sandwiching the dress fabric between the strip. It makes a very narrow binding of self-fabric.
