Hi guys, Andrea here! I thought it would be kind of cool to share with you how to sew a french seam. As you know from Jenny's post she is lucky enough to own an over locker (so jealous). Now I don't, not only because they are rather expensive (main reason haha!) but also I'm an old fashioned girl who likes to make things hard for herself, kind of sadistic like that :P
Not everyone has access to this kind of machinery so it forces you to seek out new seam ideas dug up from the past, before the era of the over locker. I find myself using this one time and time again so I thought I would share it with you.
Now if I confused you there with my explanation, here are some awesome books I refer to all the time. Basically brilliant books I recommend owning regardless of your seam choices.
