I know many people call this piping (the packaging it come in says "piping", but I was told years ago, by a very experienced New York garment district sample hand that piping is a bias fold sew into a seam WITHOUT any cord inside, so it is like a pipe. When there is cord inside, it's call cording.
I know ... it's a loosing battle.
At this point, I had to bag up this project and send Theresa a sketch with swatches because of the extra Simplicity work I was given in December. I have now finished and sent the finished product to her, so this will not be a spoiler.
Over the next two days I am going to show you how I applied the cording to the lapels and what I do to ease in a lot of extra fabric when setting in a sleeve.
So, until tomorrow ...
