Bridging

BridgingVintage sewing techniques are never lost and are being rediscovered all the time.  One of these cool techniques is bridging, also known as fagoting.  It describes two sections being sewn together but with a small gap between them and the thread is holding them together.  Bridging can be used on seamed areas but don't forget to experiment on other areas such as on collars and hemlines.  You can get beautiful results by bridging the edge of a collar, or hemline, with a pretty trim.  This tutorial covers how to replicate this look by hand sewing and by machine sewing.  There are pros and cons to both so it doesn't hurt to learn both ways and then go with the one that works best for you.  Bridging is too beautiful of a technique to be missing from your repertoire.
