Bias Binding at Rodarte, AW14, New York.

Example of bias binding at Rodarte from the Autumn-Winter 2014. Bias binding has been used here as a contrasting satin edge finish that becomes shoulder straps.

Where bias binding is used in this way, it is important that the fabric is cut perfectly on the grain if you are cutting them yourself. If the fabric is slightly off grain, then you may find that the straps start to look “ropey”. Depending on the weight of the garment, this strap design may also be too lightweight. In some cases, you could consider inserting a stronger material or trim inside the bias binding to give the straps more stability.
