How to use a fashion tape?
This article covers an easy way to keep your clothes looking neat. It’s much easier than safety pins and doesn’t damage your clothing like sewing thread or wire. Fashion tape is found in most stores that carry sewing supplies, including craft and fabric stores. Although it comes in several different sizes and colours, it’s typically made from a double-sided adhesive strip, with one side covered with paper and the other exposed so you can see where the tape has been placed on your clothing. Once you’ve learned how to use this product correctly, there’s no reason not to try it out.

Avoid getting the adhesive kind, as they often don’t stick well and peel off your clothes easily. Instead, look for double-stick tape that doesn’t require any glue to stick on. This is a good choice because it’s less likely to peel off or lose grip when you remove it from your fabric.

Fashion tape is an excellent way to keep clothes in place without damaging them.
It can be used on the inside or outside of clothes, and it’s a great alternative to pins and other tools. It comes in many colours, so you can find one that matches your style or wardrobe.
The tape is easy to use. To apply it to the inside of clothes, gently pull off an edge from the roll with your fingers, then press down firmly along the seam where you want the tape to go. For some types of fabrics (such as silk), you may want to lightly dampen the cloth before applying the tape; this will help prevent damage caused by tearing or pulling away any loose threads that might get caught between layers of material when dressing up later on.
