About this deal

The tape is a narrow strip that you sandwich between fabric layers to temporarily fixate an area and prevent it from slipping. The advantage of using over the tape over, say pins, is that it keeps the area flat without any distortion. It can also be a more stable option than hand-basting, especially when sewing knits. I am hoping it will help me sew little leggings in stretch lace for a great grandaughter….they are tiny and well just impossible, but the tapes sounds the answer so here’s hoping, thank you for your instruction Reply

I am a weaver and wish to make garments from my woven fabrics. I believe this wonder tape will help to keep cut edges of hand-woven fabric from raveling and stretching out, making it easier to piece. Reply Struggling with sewing a waistband that looks as neat on the inside as the outside? Or maybe you are having issues with knit fabrics stretching out when being stitched over? Not to mention installing zippers! Those can all be big pain points, even for more experienced sewists, which is why I’m such a fan of using a water-soluble double-sided tape, also referred to as Wonder-Tape, to solve those issues. What is Wonder-Tape? I guess dry cleaning and tumble drier are ok, once the garment has been washed. But what about ironing during the construction of the garment? Reply

For extra assurance, I usually do some hand basting too (better safe than sorry) to make sure the waistband really stays in place. After these two steps, the rest is surprisingly easy and my waistband game has improved substantially since I began using the double-sided tape.
