Easy Way to Apply Bias Tape to V-Neck Tutorial | So sew easily

bias tape on a V-neck

Have you ever wanted to apply bias binding to a V-neck and didn’t know how to do it? This quick and easy tutorial will show you how to do it and is suitable for both woven and knitted fabrics.

This type of technique can be used when you don’t want to sew a collar to your garment, making the garment lighter and easier to style, perfect for the hottest days of summer.

Materials

I use calico fabric and cotton/polyester bias tape for illustration purposes so you can clearly see what I’m doing. However, for best results, please match the thread to the bias binding and the bias binding to the fabric.

Directions

Most designs have a 5/8″ seam allowance, so the bias size is entirely up to your choice. To follow the pattern instructions and to not change the neckline size, sew a stay stitch line at 5/8″. This will be your guideline for where to place the bias fold and will also be a great help if you decide to make your own bias binding. Please see this tutorial to learn how to create your own.

Start by taking the front and staying in stitch around the neckline at 5/8″.

Draw a line directly down the middle of the V. This will be your cut line. This cut will allow the V to open and you will therefore be able to sew the bias in a straight line.

Cut the V to the point stopping 1/8″ before the seam line. The pins are just there to illustrate the 1/8″ measurement.

If you are using store-bought bias binding, note that one part is usually longer than the other, as shown in the image below. Pin the shorter side of the ribbon to the right side of the fabric.

Pin the ribbon above the seam line of the stay.

Sew the ribbon and when you get to where you cut the V, straighten the fabric by pulling to the left and continue sewing. Use the seam line you made as a guide.

Continue sewing the tape in a straight line making sure that as you pass through the point where you made the cut (marked by the yellow arrow) you are sewing on the retaining seam line.

Once you have finished sewing on the front of the bias tape, fold it over, making sure the edge of the tape falls below the seam line.

Sew very close to the fabric, paying particular attention to the point marked by the yellow arrow. It’s important to make sure you grab the tape on the back.

Turn your work inside out and fold the V-neck. You will sew a straight line on the ribbon following the direction of the yellow arrow.

As you can see, it is very simple to apply bias binding to a V-neck. Using satin bias binding will give your top a touch of elegance and lightness. We will be using this technique in future projects, so stay tuned!

Special note for beginners

If you are using a very soft, easy to unravel fabric like silk or rayon, sew the bias tape. First of all sew until you reach the point of the V, raise the machine foot, SO make the cut. Rotate the fabric,

and continue sewing. This way you will minimize unraveling of the fabric.
