You've probably heard a lot of hearsay about the bias cut. It's tricky. It's hard to sew. It uses too much fabric. The seams sag or ripple. It needs tons of basting.
What if you could stop trying to control the bias and instead start using its unique properties in your favor? What if that enabled you to make fabulous clothes that fit and flatter?
· Eliminates bias-cut sewing almost completely
· Simplifies textbooks worth of pattern drafting with a simple math formula, no scientific calculator required!
· Produces complicated-looking designs with a streamlined process
· Is efficient in both time and fabric, with only tiny slivers of material left over
