Another important thing is to measure and cut as accurately as possible. So, this photo shows how I evened up the bias after it was first cut and pressed in half lengthwise. The bias for the bodice binding was cut 7/8” THEN pressed in half lengthwise before stitching it on. I actually cut it a bit wider, press it in half and then trim it even to 7/16” an inch.
Also, if you have it, a straight stitch presser foot (like in my photo) is really helpful.
Note the tweezers and seam ripper off on the right side of the photo. They are at my side at all times when sewing doll clothes.
Next time I plan to talk about dealing with trims and curved hems.
