get the picture? all seams finished (at least for this sample)

My course requires a sample of seam finishes. I decided to go the whole hog, and did 12. So here is: overlocked, hand overcast, zig zag, self bound, bound (shop bought and hand made bias) turned over edge, pinked – can you spot the ones I haven’t mentioned?….

In keeping with the Dior theme, the idea is that the eye focuses and is “framed” by the work. Also, just having strips of seam finishes is a bit, well, dull.

not sure how many of these will feature regularly in my sewing life but at least I have a sample of them now!

A few years ago I signed up for a year long beginner's dressmaking course. I have never looked back and am always thinking about my next project, hence the sew where next? name. This blog is to try and keep track of my trials, tribulations and hopefully successful projects.
