I’ve just started my Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt using black suedette and decided to add piping to the pockets. Oh my god, I love it! I’m pretty certain this is the start of a long love affair between me and piping.
Take a look at my sneak preview below. I made it using mustard-coloured corduroy bias binding from MacCulloch & Wallis on Dering Street. I went there yesterday lunchtime, having first tried Cloth House and Liberty looking for piping cord and just the right bias binding, without success.
I made the piping and inserted it into the pocket seam last night. I had never made or inserted piping before so I was so scared that it would all go hideously wrong, but it worked a treat! Isn't the colour lovely?
Right, time to get on with it!
