What are the 3 types of seams?
In clothing construction, seams are classified by their type (plain, lapped, bound, flat) and position in the finished garment (centre back seam, inseam, side seam ). Seams are finished with a variety of techniques to prevent ravelling of raw fabric edges and to neaten the inside of garments.
How do you make plain seams?
How to sew a plain seam: You simply place the fabric, right side together, and stitch a straight line with your sewing machine or by hand and leaving the desired seam allowance. If the pattern or sewing tutorial does not state a seam allowance you should use the standard 5/8 of an inch.
