Video: Add a Bound Seam and Hong Kong Finish to an Unlined Jacket

Dec 17, 2015

Evamarie Gomez and Gary Junken

During the 2015 American Sewing Expo (ASE), we caught up with sewing instructor and pattern designer Rae Cumbie from Fit for Art Patterns. In this sewing video tutorial, she shows you how to bind a seam and add a Hong Kong finish in an unlined jacket. These finishing details are an important part of garment construction.

    I don't like to complain but this is the most unprofessional looking sewing I've seen. Not at all up to the usual Threads quality.

    I think it would look better if she actually pressed it instead of finger pressing it. It seems less professional as shown.

    Do you also do the same to the seam attaching the sleeve to the jacket?
