Join sewing expert Janet Pray as she shares her best tips for flat-felled seams, French seams, and machine-stitched hems. Janet’s garment-industry secrets will make your sewing faster, more precise, and more professional every time. Begin with an unusual method for a flat-felled seam on denim — think topstitched seams on jeans — developed by Nudie, a famous designer of stage outfits for iconic country singers. Then learn to sew a perfect French seam for sheer and lightweight fabrics. Both of these seam finishes enclose all the raw edges with no hand stitching! Next, Janet demonstrates how she speedily stitches perfect hems on straight and curved hemlines by machine to look just like those on the best ready-to-wear.
