How to sew elastic bias binding ?

Most sewing beginners freak out when they have to sew elastic bias or even elastic ribbon. Let's not say that it's a piece of cake but it is for sure a lot easier than what you think ! You just have to stick to the steps and you'll get great results.

First, don't forget your sewing margins. Your 20 mm elastic has to be folded in half so your sewing margins will be half 20 mm so 10 mm.

Secondly, you have to sew your bias twice. First on the wrong side then the right side. If you do that, your work will be a lot easier.

  1. Helping yourself with needles, place your bias wrong side together. Pull slightly the elastic when you're placing the needles.
  2. Sew on the wrong side of the fabric, on the very edge of the bias (zigzag stitch)
  3. Cut the excess of fabric 
  4. Now fold the elastic and pin the needles to maintain everything together
  5. Sew your elastic with zigzag stitch

And Voilà ! Now it's your turn to do it: choose your favorite jersey fabric and make the panties of your dreams ! See all our bias binding ribbons.
