Double-faced Wool Seam
Working with double-faced fabrics requires special seaming and finishing techniques. In this lesson, we will demonstrate the steps involved in preparing and then sewing a double-faced wool seam. You will be able to sew seams and finish garment edges to create beautiful reversible garments using this technique.

MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|Prepare two pieces of double-face wool fabric, 4” (10.2cm) in the width grain by 5” (12.7cm) in the length grain. We have chosen a two-tone fabric for demo purposes.
|Since we will be doing a fair amount of basting for this lesson, we will be using 100% cotton embroidery thread for basting. Cotton embroidery thread is heavier than regular cotton thread and easier to use for basting. You will also need a pair of very sharp pointed-edge embroidery scissors.
|Cut an 18” (45.7cm) length of cotton embroidery thread and separate a single strand. We will be using only one strand for basting.
