Came across this term the other day, and didn't find it on sewing.org.
What is a French-felled seam?
I don't know if it's the same as a French seam or a flat-felled seam, or if it's a French seam that's been ironed over and then sewn (felled?).
This page has a picture and talks about it a little bit (http://www.amefird.com/puckerwoven.htm
), and although I'm usually good with understanding diagrams, I can't quite figure out how one would actually sew that. All the searches in google for "how to" and "french felled" kept bringing up references of a "how to repair your outdoor equipment" book review. :/
EDIT: Ok, I think I figured it out (I took some paper and folded it and pretended it was fabric).
How useful is this stitch? It seems rather permanent, and only for something that you know fits exactly due to the way it's folded over. I think they might be handy on something like a yukata or kimono since it's very straight lines with little variation.
Does anyone use French-felled seams?
