How to stabilise an edge with cotton tape
With Becca

Class Overview

Stabilising edges is a must-do if you’re handling a woven fabric that might stretch out. We use it in our Eve Dress to make sure that wrap-over front doesn’t stretch out too much and show off more than you want to! Becca talks through the slightly fiddly technique and shows you how to make it part of your sewing skillset.
