I started this year with only 10 months sewing under my belt: an eager novice, with much to learn. I took myself off on some experiments with seams and hems. I researched, sampled, photographed and documented.
I discovered beauty can really can be on the inside (unless my hand sewing is involved ... in which case ... quick, look away now).
Simple seam edge finishes
Flat fell seams
Taped (stabilised) seams
Creating seams on curves and corners
Double fold hems (wovens)
Single fold hems (wovens)
Hemming stretch fabric
I'd like to do more of this next year. More hems and perhaps some closures. In the meantime, its all French seams and Hong Kong finishes for me. And none of it by hand.
