Tutorial: Biast Tape Trim via Hong Kong Finish
Click here to view this tutorial!
If you have a project where you want to put double folded bias tape at the edge of your coat or neck line or sleeves or whatever, but don’t want to top stitch the entire bias tape down or spend the hours hand stitching a back seam? Then this tutorial is for you!
The Hong Kong Finish is a semi-hidden seam finish that can be used on bias tape to make a clean seam on your front, while using tight stitching of similar colors to hide away a back stitch. Much faster than hand stitching and still gives you a much cleaner finish than top stitching!
So today I fixed my veil catastrophe
Through diligent work and like 10 packets of dye I ACTYALLY GOT THIS NYLON COTTON POLY VEIL…to behave and look like I wanted it to.
I am so thrilled and so RELIEVED at how it tuned out.
I took this thing from white, to bruise brown, to red and dried blood, and FINALLY to a solid red.
It’s been a trip…

I am here for this dead victorian lady shit
I don’t think I can properly express my amusement at the phrase “I am here for this dead victorian lady shit”. Also, I suppose “dead victorian lady” is a good description of part of my preferred fashion aesthetic.
