About me

My photo
I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

You are absolutely right

A couple of comments have reminded me of something I should have mentioned and thought of.

A French seam and faux flat felled works only if you are dealing with a light, shirt weight fabric. Anything heavier and the traditional flat felled would be the seam of choice.

I had no problem doing  the topstitched French seam thing with my current cotton broadcloth but would go back and use a straight up flat felled when I am working on my pique shirts.

Appreciate the reminder.
