It is addictive, isn't it!

Totally!It's such a pretty way to finish a seam and it's really not hard at all.

I felt the same way about pleating. What an achievement!

Very nice :) I love piping necklines, any time I have to do a 'normal' neckline I sigh for my piping!

Any good tips on how to do this kind of seam?

I've never had to - even for the couple of Victorians I've recently made. However, there is one Victorian I want to make (hopefully for Christmas time) which should have piped seams. Using Velvet - which I daresay will make it more complicated.

I've tried to find some online tutorials but those I have found made it seem terribly complicated.

Oh pretty!
In which period was piping invented?

Pretty! I love the fabric.

No. It's perfectly normal.
At least guessing from my own attitude to piping.
