finishing (overcasting) clipped seams

Brine | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I generally serge with a three thread overcast to keep my seam allowances from raveling; however, I am unsure how I should treat the clipped seam allowance on a curve. Any thoughts?

      I second that.  Plus, when clipping you'll find most of the time you are cutting on at least a slight bias.  A bias cut won't frey, which is why some people use pinking sheers.  No need to worry about missing teeny bits when you serge.
