my last seam! woohoo!
it’s been interesting to see the level of raw-edge-coverage that each seam provides. when i made this one the first time, i only folded the seam over once, thus not fully encasing the raw edge. i then realized that this was not correct, and the second time i folded it over twice (creating the tinniest little folded seam eva!), so that there are no raw edges showing. it’s interesting to compare this to the turned and stitched seam, which only hides the raw edges under the seam.
look at that teeny tiny fold!
i don’t know why i insist on showing you the face…
- the craftsy sewing blog has a beautiful series on seam finishes. here’s their self-bound seam post.
- sunni at a fashionable stitch sews her self-bound seam by hand. it looks lovely!
- i used the vogue sewing book, again. they also instruct you to hand sew the seam. but no.
so that’s it for seams! i’m flip-flopping between pockets or closures for next week… any suggestions?
