Single Edge Seam Finish

Single Edge Seam Finish

Single Edge Seam Finish

In this lesson, the single edge seam finish, you will learn how to sew a seam finish that is used on sheer fabrics such as organza, voile, chiffon and georgette. This finish is most commonly used for sheer seams with no stress on them, such as on very full skirts and dresses with many layers of fabric. It is also a great choice when you want the seam allowance on your design to be minimally visible.

For other sheer seam options, view our lessons: Double Stitched Seam Finish, Mock French 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.
