You can find a new video tutorial on my YouTube channel. This one is about sewing bias tape hems with hidden seams. This hemming method is often called "French bias tape hemming/binding". It's similar to classic way of sewing hems, but the results are a little different.  If you are a bit afraid to work with a bias tape, then believe that there is no reason to. See for yourself… Video tutorial on how to sew hems with a bias tape:

You can also use a bias tape to clean the cutting edges if you don't have an overlock or if you like traditional tailoring. I chose to clean the seam allowances of this women's dungaree skirt with a bias tape:
