May 09, 2017

Evamarie Gomez and Carol Fresia; Videographer: Jeff Roos

In this Insider All Access video, Threads Contributing Editor Judith Neukam shares some dos and don’ts for achieving professional-looking faced edges. Follow along as Judith explains the characteristics of a well-sewn faced edge and demonstrates how to create great-looking faced edges. You’ll learn how to mark, stitch, clip, trim, and press facing seams, so the completed piece has a smooth edge, with the seamline either placed exactly along the edge or rolled sightly to the wrong side. Each step is important in getting the high-quality results that make any garment look its best.
