Stitched and Pinked Seam Finish
                                                                                                                             






Description
                                                                                   

    This is a variation of the pinked seam finish. But with this finish, a line of stitching is added to
    the seam edge, making it even more fray resistant.


Suitable for
                                                                                   

    Most fabrics


Advantages
                                                                                   

    Easy to make. Doesn’t add bulk to the seam allowance. Prevents fraying better than a plain,
    pinked edge.


Disadvantages
                                                                                   

    Doesn’t look as neat and clean as other methods.


How to Make
                                                                                   

    Press the seam allowance open. Sew a line of straight stitches about 1/4” from the raw edge.
    Trim close to the line of stitching with pinking shears.
