1/4" Washable Wonder Tape is the single, most fantastic sewing notion created. Ever. I can't work without it now that I've discovered it. I use it to baste seams together instead of stitching or pins. Baste up hems, turn under facing raw edges, stablize flimsy seams or narrow hems as they're put through the machine. It's malleable, re-posiitonable, a perfect 1/4" and washes away without a trace. It's fantastic. Click the little green camera above to go The Heroine's Closet for a tutorial on how it was used to "baste" mesh fashion fabric to a tricot lining on the Divine Dinner dress.
Get some, you'll love it!

My favorite use for this tape is putting in zippers. Much easier when they stay put. Thanks for reminding me about the neckline edge use.

Does it get all over the needle?

Amanda.Clair, no it doesn't gum up the needle at all. When done project it'll wash right out. Last week I had to replace a zipper in a pair of jeans, used to hold zipper and pockets in place.

It's BRILLIANT for zippers, matching plaids, doesn't gum up the needles, washes right out. I'm lovin' it! Have I mentioned that?!

Wawak has it under sewing notions, tailoring tapes for $2.70. I get several at a time, and they've had the best price for it I've seen.
