No. 2 of my Finishing Touches Series for Sewing World Magazine


Last month was bound buttonholes, this month it’s “Decorative Seams” for my Finishing Touches series.

It covers piped seams and slot or channel seams.  Piping is a great way to pick out details like collar edges, pockets, etc and to highlight seams, slot seams can look fab down the sides of skirts and trousers.

Two techniques to give your garments the edge.  Have a go, before you know it you’ll be piping everything.

It’s on pages 64 to 66 of the April issue of the magazine which is out now priced £4.99 which isn’t going to break the bank and that also includes a full-size pull-out pattern section.  It’s stocked in WH Smiths if you were wondering…..!

  1. Hello Wendy, I just wanted to thank you for all the great sewing things you put on your site. I keep saving things to favourites to use later. I’m just trying to summon up the courage to sew some knit fabric I bought and your info is sooo much more helpful than anything else I’ve looked at on the net (and I’ve looked at thousands of posts!)
    Thank you again,



  2. Hi Sue, that’s really great to hear. Thanks for taking the time to let me know! Take the plunge and have a go with the knit fabric, I think you may be surprised, you’ll be hooked before you know it. I’d love to hear how you get on.
