- Mar 2, 2009spandex might not even have to be cut on the bias, if the fabric is
stretchy enough on the cross (usually the stretchiest direction for
knits, even the four-way kinds).
Making your own bias is so easy, it makes the storebought stuff look
really blah. Anytime I'm making a garment where I'm using bias to
finish an armhole, neckline, whatever, I usually make it out of the
scraps of the fashion fabric, unless there's a good reason not to.
