Piping is a fantastic way to add a little extra flair to your historical gowns, as well as added durability. It is very easy to make your own. All you will need is bias tape, cording, pins, and a zipper foot for your machine.
Step 1: Assemble all the needed materials.
Step 2: Pin the cording into the bias tape by folding the tape in half and pinning right next to the cording.
Step 3: Sew right against the cording, taking out the pins as you go.
And that is all you have to do to make quick, easy piping! Good luck and happy piping!
