I have a pattern from the late 40's and some of the pieces are cut on the bias.

Is there some where online that could show me some step by step info on this?

Thanks
Kat

While not exactly step by step, this tip posted by LauraLo is quite helpful. Also, I recall finding many threads on this topic when I made my first bias dress. Have you tried a search?

Threads had this article about sewing with bias. If you enter bias in their search panel, you will get lots of articles, but most of them aren't on point. You will have to read through the titles.
