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


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


    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.
