Piping adds all kinds of interest to a garment. It can be made out of any fabric you like! From these inspiration photos you can see that piping not only adds a pop of color, it also shows the contours of a pattern’s design lines.
For your project, you don’t have to use a bright or contrasting color, you can use the same color as your garment for a more subtle touch.
How have you used piping in your creative sewing projects? If you haven’t used piping before, maybe now’s the time to consider giving it a go! Rachel has written an excellent tutorial showing how to add flat piping to one of our patterns. Check back for details this week!
