Step Description
1 For this lesson, we cut two pieces of a double-face wool fabric, measuring 6” (15.2cm) in the width grain and 5” (12.7cm) in the length grain of the fabric. We are using two colors to better illustrate the technique. This seam finish can be used on any garment where the fabric edges don’t fray.
