How to Stitch Piping on Curves. Quick Tips

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Hey everyone. Today I wanted to give a couple quick tips on how to stitch piping on curves. I hope you enjoy it.

It's easy to stitch piping on curves if you remember to follow a few general rules.

1) When sewing piping to edges with inward curves, such as neckline, and armscyes, clip the seam allowances on the piping and hold the piping taut so you can shape it out smoothly.
2) When sewing piping to edges with outward curves, such as collars pockets and flaps, ease the piping to the seam line so the finished edge wont curl under.
3)When piping a square neckline, hold the piping taut at the corner.
4) When piping cuffs and collars, clip the seam allowances on the piping and ease the piping at all of the corners.

I hope these quick tips are able to help you out.
