1 Basic Seams and Seam Finishes

2 Plain Seam The most common type of seam. Made with one line of stitching. Standard seam 5/8 inch.

3 What is a Seam Finish? A way of treating a seam edge to prevent raveling and to make the seam stronger and longer wearing.

4 Type of Seam Finish Depends on the weight of your fabric and how much it will ravel.

5 Which fabrics require a seam finish? Firmly woven fabrics do not need seam finishes. Loosely-woven and sheer fabrics do require seam finishes.

6 Pinked Seam Finish Used on fabrics that will not ravel. Gives a neat appearance.

7 Pinked and Stitched Used on fabrics that will ravel slightly.

8 Zigzag finish Used on fabrics that ravel. May be done either close to the seam edge or over the edge of a seam.
