Learn how-to sew a French seam in #TechniqueTuesday with Markee and then make her Black Sheer Dressing Gown.
Sew your two bits of fabric together as normal, HOWEVER, so the wrong sides are together instead of the right sides. This will feel really strange, but trust me on this!
Turn and press your seam so that the right sides are touching.
Sew along the seam again. Make sure your seam allowance is slightly larger than it was before, so that you will enclose the rough edge of the fabric within your new stitches.
It should look something like this. Mine is a little messy, I'm sure you can do better :)
Turn and press again. When you are done, your seam should be enclosed in fabric on the inside of your garment. That's you done! It's pretty easy, but takes twice as long as sewing a normal seam.
This is the dressing gown I made with my french seams (you can see them best in the picture on the far left being flung into the air), what did you make with yours?
