Wire Casing - Tricot
Bra channel, which is sewn onto the bra to take a bra wire. Specially made to be strong enough to prevent the bra wire poking through.
Applying bra casing tape
We recommend that the bra casing is the last to be sewn onto your bra. Some patterns suggest that it is sewn on before the plush elastic is applied, but this only applies if you are making your own fabric casing as it is much weaker. Sew the plush elastic and bra band in place, then apply the bra casing. Bar tack the bra casing at the centre front. Insert your wires, push them out of the way and bar tack the outer ends of the casing.
This tricot tape is much lighter, and often easier to sew on domestic machines because it is thinner. It is often used on the outside of the bra as it is more decorative. The 7mm version is only sewn on at one side
