I am making a bridesmaid gown from satin overlain with a sheer polyester chiffon. It is all cut on the bias. My problem is the chiffon seams. I tried little french seams, but they got all bulgy and rippled. What I ended up doing was making two fine seams side by side and trimming very closely – the bias should prevent it from ravelling. It looks OK, but I’m wondering if there isn’t something more elegant that I could do. I did a sample with narrow serging, too, but it showed.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
