Hello, I was reading on the Burdastyle website how to apply twill tape, and the instructions say to place the tape directly over the stitching line on the wrong side of the shirt back piece, stitch the tape on the piece, then sew the back piece with the stay tape to the front piece…

My question is, if the tape is sewn directly on the stiching line, when the final seam is sewn, won’t half of the stay tape be poking through the right side of the garment where it can be seen/felt?

Answers would be appreciated! Thanks very much,
