    Gosgrain Question......

    Are you using it just to make the hems nice & neat and reinforced, or are you going to run shock cord through a grosgain channel?

    1.5" for shock cord channels. Most fabric vendors will also have grosgrain, usually called roll goods.

    Get your grosgrain from http://www.questoutfitters.com/index.html or one of the DIY suppliers on this forum. The quality is much better than the cheap stuff from the fabric stores.

    Nope, bias tape is a different animal, it's made to bend around corners and stretch better than regular tape (grosgrain).
    Good luck,
