Hong Kong Bound Seam Finish

This lesson will teach you how to sew a Hong Kong seam finish, the absolute nicest way to finish a seam and the way they do it in the couture. We begin by demonstrating how to join the seams of the wool seam sampler and then, using silk organza bias strips, we teach you how to encase the seam so that the end result is a clean finish that can even be used to create an unlined garment.
