Hello everyone and thank you for making this such a great reference!
My next project is a Vintage Vogue 1930s evening gown (I can’t remember the number off hand, but it is a long bias-looking dress with low back, pictured in white and red on the cover).
The instructions say that to attach the godets to the skirt, you press the SA in on the godets, line them up over the edges of the skirt, baste and sew a lapped seam. I think you sew it twice. My question is when and how do you finish the seams. I wouldn’t want to zig zag before hand (unless I staystitched) as you would be sewing right along this bias grain. Would you overcast afterwards? Has anyone seen this seam used on any original clothing?
