Golden Age of Travel -- Unbiased Bias
- Find the exact center of each of the four sides of the three scarves. You can do this by bringing the points together and marking where they fold.
- Fold one scarf in half diagonally.
- Line up the center point of the folded scarf with the center mark of another scarf. Sew the second scarf to the right side of the folded scarf.
- Line up the center point of the folded scarf with the center mark of the last scarf. Sew the third scarf to the left side of the folded scarf.
- Line up the center point on the back of the folded scarf with the center mark on the left scarf just like you did for the front. Repear for the right scarf. Sew all this together. The dress should be identical front and back.
- Sew the left and right (second and third) scarves to each other from where they meet at the point of the folded scarf to their ends
- Find the center of the folded scarf and cut a hole just barely large enough for your head.
- Try it on!
Even unpressed and right out of the dryer, you can see the slinky bias cut working its charm on the dress form. And you didn't have to sew on the bias once. You didn't even have to cut on the bias! Told ya.
