I finish all my seams with my overlocker (serger), but sometimes I'm not sure whether this is the best option. Should seams be sewn together or separate (I generally go together because it is easier & I think looks better, unless using heavy fabrics or there's a zipper in the seam). When should I use other finishes such as french or bound?
How do you finish your seams? I would love to learn more about this.
I zigzag seams on my sewing machine and press open. This is because I don't have an overlocker!
Does anyone pink their seams? I do have pinking shears but I never do this because it seems to easy to be a good idea.....
I don't have an overlocker either so I either use French seams or zigzag the edges which has worked well so far. :-)
On waist seams I usually sew twice and zigzag as well. Must try a waist-stay one day.
Now that I have an overlocker, I think that will seam everything until isn't fun anymore.
I used to zigzag (I really dont like the way it looks ) and pink !
