seam finishes

Barb_S. | Posted in The Archives on

I’m just starting to sew. Just got a copy of Sewing Basics by Patricia Moyes and have been doing pretty well. In her book, she mentions rayon seam tape (p. 38, 46) to make a finish similar to a Hong Kong finish. I don’t think I have ever seen seam tape made of rayon – I’ve seen the old Coat’s and Clark’s tape made of polyester but never rayon. Where would I find it? What is it?

    Rayon seam tape is very lightweight and can be used to wrap seam allowance edges or stabilize seams without adding bulk. Many better fabric stores carry it. You won't find it at the chains. You can also order it from tailoring supply houses.

      *Another choice is Seams Great, a bias knit tape that is lightweight and easy to apply to seams. This is available at chains (Joann's carries it) and through mailorder.
