What is Stitching Seams?To stitch seams is to join pieces of fabric together. There are a variety of different ways to stitch seams. The most common seam I use is the Flat Seam, which is the simplest one to create.
TutorialsOn the Alternative Windows website they have a good brief description explaining what flat, princess and gathering seams look like complete with diagrams.
For video tutorial I recommend the YouTube video from PandemicApparel where she clearly explains lots of different types of seams.
Measure a ⅝ inch distance for the seam allowance and pin the side seams.
Use a standard straight stitch to create the seam.
The seam is now ready to be pressed.
Open the seam and press in place.
Next week I will explain the pressing techniques and tools.
