In case you were wondering...

if you take 2 yards of sixty inch wide fabric and make a 2 inch wide bias strip out of it, you will end up with 65 yards of bias tape.
I know you were wondering that.

A few more little known facts -
-When the disappearing ink pen says that it will last 24 hours, do not believe it! It will not last the amount of time that it takes to sew and measure your binding.
-It is very frustrating to re-measure already sewn continuous loop bias binding.
-Children with dirty hands are irresistibly drawn to white satin.
-Convincing slippery satin bias tape to STAY ROLLED is nearly impossible. Swearing may be required. Or duct tape.
-After you have made all of that bias binding, you will need large amounts of semi-sweet chocolate chips and Advil to deal with the resultant migraine.

  1. Oh my goodness! Now you have to actually sew all that onto something. Hope they don't have to put you in the looney bin before you are finished. :) Seriously, with all the time you are taking this dress is going to be gorgeous!
