A sewing tutorial for Beginners
Once you’ve gained confidence in sewing straight lines, a French seam is a great step to add to your sewing projects to get them looking extra special.
French seams are most commonly used for fine fabrics:
- The seam is sewn twice, making the finished item more durable.
- Raw edges are enclosed in the finished seam, to give a neat finish.
- Some fine fabrics are sheer, making seams visible. A French seam is aesthetically pleasing.
