Learn how-to sew a mock French seam in #TechniqueTuesday with Stacy from Stacy Sews and then make her Corset Patchwork Skirt.
Place fabric right sides together.
Sew using the seam allowance noted in your pattern.
* The seams will need to be larger than 1/4". In these photos we have used a 5/8" seam allowance.
Reduce your seam to 3/8". The easiest way to keep a consistent seam is to use a ruler and mark before cutting.
Press seam flat and fold over raw edges to meet the seam.
Match folded edges together so that the raw edges are encased within the fold. Pin in place.
Edgestitch the folded edge.
Press seam to one side! Your finished seam should look just like a French seam!
