more sewing for skills today and I talk about another trim technique: flat piping!
what it is
flat piping has become one of my favorite accents in the past year. essentially it's a folded piece of fabric nestled between two pieces of main fabric.
like regular piping it is a great way to accent a bodice or waist line. here it is doing just that in the snowflake pjs I made the girls a few years back.
in my experience
i first used flat piping in maya's spunky funky polka dot library dress.
i liked the look so much i used it the next time i made the pattern for nora and etta's back to school dresses in 2014.
and again for maya's fireworks dress,
and once more for neela's music box tunic.
without a doubt the oliver + s library dress is a great way to learn flat piping.
