A flat felled seam is commonly seen on sportswear and menswear. It is a strong flat seam that will not fray. This tutorial shows how to make a flat felled seam, commonly seen on jeans and denim jackets, that has two rows of stitches on the right side of the fabric.
- With wrong sides of fabric together, sew a 5/8" seam allowance or amount specified in your pattern, backtacking at the beginning and end of seam.
- Trim one seam allowance to 1/4" from the stitched seam line.
- Press flat the larger seam allowance toward the trimmed seam allowance.
- Fold the larger seam allowance under enclosing the trimmed seam allowance and pin.
- Edgestitch close to fold.
What's all you have to do to sew a flat felled seam. This seam is quite easy once you know the technique.
