I am about to embark on a bias skirt project, and upon researching “bias” in Threads I find two articles that seem to contradict one another. The article “Getting Better on the Bias” in #67 says to feed the material under the presser foot by holding a little “hump” in front of it, so that it doesn’t stretch. In the article “Bias 101” in #76, it recommends actually stretching the fabric as you sew vertical seams, and that the resulting pucker will disappear with pressing. They also differ as far as layout for cutting.
What success have others had with these methods?
