Hi, I’m Jennifer from Workroom Social and today I’m going to show you how to sew a flat felled seam. A flat felled seam encases the raw edge of the seam allowance and this is a very common way to finish seams that you see on jeans and on sportswear.

To demonstrate that today, we’re going to need to identify the wrong side of the fabric. So I’m just going to mark my two wrong sides. I’m going to start by sewing wrong sides together. I’m going to sew a 5/8 of an inch seam allowance. So I’m lining up my fabric with the raw edge on the 5/8 guide on my seam guide, and I’m just sewing a straight stitch. I’m using a 2.5 millimeter stitch length. I’m just going to go all the way down to the bottom.

Now, so we have our wrong sides together and our right sides with the seam allowance up. So the next thing I want to do is to just finger press this seam open, so it lies a little bit flat, a little flatter. Then I want to trim one side of the seam allowance down short because we’re going to encase it with the other seam allowance. So I’m going to trim this down and leave about between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch.

Now, to hide all these raw edges, I’m just going to take this larger seam allowance and fold it under, and then fold the whole thing over, so everything is hidden. Then you’ll just pin it in place, and then you can just move up your seam to do the whole thing. Of course, if you’re uncomfortable doing this by eye, you can get your seam guide out or ruler and measure this fold so that it’s all nice and even.

So we have our seam in place, and then we’re just going to go to the sewing machine and stitch close to this fold all the way down to secure our seam. We’ll go back to the sewing machine and I’m going to lower the presser foot and I’m just going to eyeball close to this edge. Now when you’re doing this, you can always use the edge of the inside of the presser foot as your guide for an edge stitch. Or my presser foot has little notches on the right hand side that are also really useful reference guides.

Okay, and there we have our flat felled seam, and this is the right side. This is the wrong side. Of course, depending on your preference, you can always choose to use this seam look for your right side, if that’s what you would prefer, and put this one the wrong side. It’s really up to you. But that’s how you sew a flat felled seam.

    I like this lady a lot. Her tutorials are straight up concise and cogent, and her presentation isn't "all about her". Thank you.

    Very interesting! (I wonder how they do this for production jeans manufacturing because this is relatively labor-intensive.) Also, I really appreciate how your editors shorten up the clips so that we don't have to watch the machine stitching the entire length of the fabric!

    The sound of this machine makes me cringe. No plastic machines! I way prefer older metal model with there nicer stitch and solidity.

    What was the white marking pen that was used in the video to mark the x's so easily? I'm looking for a good marking pen/ pencil. Can someone please help me out?

    A trick to avoid having to trim one of the seam allowances is to cut your patterns or modify patterns you have so one seam is half the allowance of the other. If you have 1/4” on one and 1/2” on the other and your foot edge is a 1/4” from the needle, you can use the foot edge for the 1/4” allowance and the needle plate 1/2” line for the other one.

    Pins should be placed at right angles to the seam, then the machine will easily sew over the needle.

    I thought a true flat felled seam did not have your first line of stitching, then relied on two passes of your second stitch line.This means that when viewed it looks the same both sides and each side has a line of top thread next to the folded edge and a line of lower bobbin thread further in, so you have to test stitch first to make sure thread tension makes matching stitches. Not sure what this stitch is called, but it is a perfectly good stitch, and is easier, so fine unless you are being fussy!
