In this video, Denise Wild demonstrates how to sew a French seam. French seams are frequently used on sheer and delicate fabrics such as silk, chiffon, and organza. This technique is particularly appealing in situations where serged stitches or other seam finishes may be visible from the outside of the garment. The raw edges of the seam allowance are enclosed within a second seam, creating a tidy, professional finish. French seams can be used with any number of fabrics, adding a high-end touch to your sewing projects.
