Carefully hold the edging in place and arrange it under the presser foot so the needle will stitch directly alongside the edging. As you top-stitch the edging, you will need to pause (always with the needle down) and make sure the edging material is tight against the edge of the corset. With the bias tape, you also want to make sure the raw edge on the underside is folded under, and that the folded edge is far enough into the body of the corset that it catches at all points.
When you get close to the other end of the corset, pause and fold over the edging like before. It needs to be smooth and tight, with all raw edges contained within the edging.
Carefully hold down the folded edging to ensure it stays in place while the corset moves through the sewing machine.
After you have finished top-stitching, you will want to turn over the corset and examine it to ensure the back side of the edging was caught within the stitches at all points. If you missed anywhere, pull it down tight and top-stitch that area again.
These are photos of the finished edging.
