welcome To The One Thimble Blog
Toni-Maree from Bobbins & Co is back today to show you how to make a split cut bias. She uses the Archie Shirt (by Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns from Issue 6 of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine) in her example but you could use this method on any yoke. This super example above was made by Shelley from and me designs.
- Add a 1cm or 3/8″ seam allowance to the fold line of the yoke pattern piece.
2. Decide on the angle you would like the stripe or pattern to run at. Cut one side of the yoke out.
3. Flip the cut yoke piece over to the wrong side. Align the stripes as accurately as you can, especially near the centre back seam.
4. Optional: You can now place your pattern over top to stabilise as you cut but its not necessary.
5. Cut your opposing yoke piece.
6. Right sides together, match the centre back stripes. This should be easy if your cutting was accurate. Sew the centre back seam and press seam allowances open.
