What is a Bias Cut?

“A bias cut is a cut across the grain of a fabric which causes the material to fall into a smooth vertical drape. This allows it to be easily manipulated. Bias cut dresses were worn during the 1920’s and 1930’s and often featured in major films during the 1920’s and 1930’s.”

 

(The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Fashion and Fashion Designers)
