Fine Seam Finish

CathyB | Posted in General Discussion on

Tommy HIlfiger’s spring or summer collection had a georgette blouce in white with a periwinkle stripe.  The back was seamed, with the fabric’s stripe forming a V.

The seams were finished with a Hong Kong finish (folded over 1/4 in?)   Is there foot or an industry secret for perfect a Hong Kong finish?  There was no rippling, even though the edge was a bias edge.

It was really a suprise to find such detail on a mass-produced garmet.  Quite lovely.

    Are you talking about a true Hong Kong finish with a separate bias finish or just a turned edge?

      Escellent question.  I was referring to a turned edge, but why not expand the question to include a true Hong Kong finish?

      They are both lovely.
