Trying a binding from some scraps

I think this is the best stash fabric I have to make a binding for this sweater dress refashion.

Used it years ago to make a wrap dress for a family anniversary party.

There was plenty in the scrap to cut a long enough bias strip to bind the new scoop neckline.

There were not enough wool scraps to do a self-bind, and even if there were, this synthetic will be less itchy than more wool against my skin.

Purple. Clearly I adore it. It’s exciting that my purples now are working in harmony.
