Featured in the PR book!
I am a "rusher" at times. I want an outfit made and need it that same day! Well, I used to avoid cutting bias garments as the skirts or dresses technically need to hang some hours before you hem or finish. Who has 24 hours to wait? Well here's what I came up with. . . I cut my garment out the night before I need it. I make sure it's too late to actually make the garment. :-) I then pin the pieces (loosely) on my dress dummy and go to bed. The next morning WALA! The bias is set - not to mention the garment is cut out! I sew the side seams and put in the hem first (with a long stitch, just in case) and then finish the rest of my construction. Still sewn in one day so you and get that "last minute high"!

I have made a bias skirt yet, but this sounds like a time saving tip. Thanks for sharing it. jean

Thanks for the tip -- since I've never made a bias skirt, I didn't know you needed to hang it out first LOL. Now I know -- thanks!

I've avoided bias skirts for the same reason. Now I'll have to revisit them, based on your tip. Thank you.
