I sew windlace with a 3/4" welt foot when I'm using 1/2" sponge rod, and a 5/8" welt foot when I use 3/8" sponge rod. It comes out perfect in a tenth of the time needed to glue windlace, and the rest is just how you apply it in the car.

I never cut welts of any kind on the bias, and especially when I sew vinyl. I never want to see a seam in a welt, ever. This case was an unusual one where the corner of the car's door was on a severe angle, and of course that would be hard to do with any fabric. The point is, he got it fixed and it's fine now.
