Chiffon Seam Finishes
I need information about sheer fabric seam finishes (other than french seams). I’m unable to find the article I thought was in a Threads magazine a year or so ago. I have a double-tone polyester chiffon and am making a loose fitting wrap. Also, any hints from you experienced seamstresses with the best way to stabilize the fabric.
I posted a similar message about a week ago regarding wedding dress seam finishes and got alot of good advice. Check out the "Hairline Seams" article in Threads, June/July 2005. I was also advised to serge each raw edge with a two-thread serger stitch sewn with very fine thread, like embroidery thread, then press the seams open. I think for your application (unlined), I would use the hairline seam.
Thanks so much for your help.
