French seams are used on thin, more delicate fabrics like various silks and chiffon that are easily damaged by zig zag or serging finishes. French seams wont pull and damage the threads of fine weaving and allow for a more durable, smooth finish. This is a higher quality, more expensive sewing technique that requires you to encase the raw edges of the fabric with two separate stitches, which in terms creates a clean look on both the face and wrong sides of the garment. Follow the steps bellow to learn how to sew a french seam at 1/2" seam allowance.
