Welcome to Part 1 of my Keyhole Dress tutorial. Today I am going to show you how to make a french seam, but don't worry, it is a whole lot easier than it sounds. It's hard to take a picture of this one, but it looks like this when it is finished. The raw edges are hidden inside so everything is nice and neat.
This is how I finished the side seams of the skirt part of the dress before attaching it to the bodice. You could always use just a plain flat seam, but the point of this series is to teach you something new. (And I just think it looks prettier.) So, here we go...
I didn't receive a lot of feedback about whether most of you guys prefer video or written tutorials, so I went ahead and gave video another try. I think this one turned out pretty well, but please let me know your feelings on the subject. (At least I made it shorter this time! ; )
Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to sew buttonholes.
Thanks for visiting.
