Sewing handwoven underarm seams
What I would like to see in Threads is an exhaustive article on how to sew underarm seams using handwoven fabric. I can’t seem to find just the right solution to the problem.
If you merely serge the seam, it is reasonably flexible, but will it wear well? I tried binding a seam once and had to cut it out and redo it entirely. How closely do you trim the seam? What kind of unraveling preventive?
And what do you do with the shoulder seam that feeds into the underarm seam?
