No. 2 of my Finishing Touches Series for Sewing World Magazine

Last month was bound buttonholes, this month it’s “Decorative Seams” for my Finishing Touches series.

It covers piped seams and slot or channel seams.  Piping is a great way to pick out details like collar edges, pockets, etc and to highlight seams, slot seams can look fab down the sides of skirts and trousers.

Two techniques to give your garments the edge.  Have a go, before you know it you’ll be piping everything.

It’s on pages 64 to 66 of the April issue of the magazine which is out now priced £4.99 which isn’t going to break the bank and that also includes a full-size pull-out pattern section.  It’s stocked in WH Smiths if you were wondering…..!
