Seam finishing is a very important part of sewing. The inside of your garment should be as lovely as the outside. Why? Because finished seams not only look professional, they keep the edges of your fabric from fraying. If you’ve been attached to your pinking sheers or are looking for a different way to change the look of your seams, try out one of these techniques. We’ve put together some helpful tutorials to get you started. These are also posted under tutorials, tips and tricks.
If the technique is new to you, try it out on some scrap fabric first. French seams may appear daunting at first, at first they seemed quite complicated to me! Slow down and take the time to learn how to make this, or another lovely finish. You’ll not only be adding a new technique to your sewing arsenal but refining the look of your garment.
