Description

In this course, you will learn 2 sewing skills.

Sewing French Seam

(1) You will learn how to sew french seam by hand sewing or by machine sewing. French seam is useful for finishing such garments made with delicate transparent fabrics such as organza, organdie, tafetta, lace,chiffon, netting etc.

French seam is also good for hand sewers who are sewing entirely by hand and are not using a sewing machine at all. Machine sewers also use this seam, usually for delicate fabrics or for children's clothes. It helps you to finish the raw edge by encasing it in another seam. This stops fraying and also gives a very tidy finish to your garment.

Making and sewing bias binding

Who this course is for:
  • All those who want to learn to make their own clothes.
