4. Decide on the best way to fold your cloth this will depend on the width of the cloth, width of your pattern pieces, the type of cloth and design of the garment (whether left and right haves are identical. Whether many pieces have to be cut on fold the garment (whether left and right halves are identical, whether many pieces have to be cut on fold etc.) The common methods of folding the cloth for laying out pattern pieces are the following.

5. Body and stiffness of collar must be sufficient for the design. 16.3.1 Bias piece: True bias which is otherwise called as cross piece or falls on a diagonal line at 45 to the lengthwise and crosswise grains. It has the maximum elasticity or in other word it stretches more than any other direction on cloth. True bias is used to finish raw edges. It is useful especially for finishing curved edges such as neckline, sleeveless armholes and scallops. A straight piece of material attached to a curve will look bulky and untidy. The elasticity of bias permits it to stretch or contract and thus takes the shape of any curved edge giving it a flat smooth finish. Bias strips can be applied as facings and bindings 1. Cutting bias strips: Fold the fabric diagonally so that the lengthwise threads of the folded part fall parallel to the crosswise threads on the rest of the material. (If the grain lines cannot be clearly seen, mark the lines with chalk first). Using a gauge or ruler, measure from the fold to desired width of bias strip (usually 1 to 1) and draw parallel lines. Cut strips along the marked lines and trim off ends along the warp threads.
