Mock French Seam Finish

Mock French Seam Finish

Mock French Seam Finish

This lesson will teach you how to create a mock French seam finish. This seam finish cleans the edge without the labor involved in creating a French seam. Use it on sheer fabrics such as organza, voile, chiffon and georgette. We will teach you how to control the fabric at the sewing machine as you stitch, as well as other trade techniques involved in the sewing and pressing of this sheer seam finish. Once you master the sampler you will be ready to try it out on an actual garment.

For other sheer seam options, view our lessons: Single Edge Seam Finish, Double-stitched Seam Finish, and French Seam Finish.

For sheer hem options, view our lessons: Hand-rolled Hem Finish, Machine-foot Baby Hem, Tailored Edge/Baby Hem, Horsehair Hem Finish, Ribbon-edge Hem Finish and Wide Straight-grain Hem Finish.
