Does anyone know the best type of seam finishes for a wedding dress? I’m making a bustier style top made from several sections and it will be lined with silk. The main part of the bodice is made from furnishing satin with a layer of tulle over the top and backed with silk organza (as I will be beading it eventually!)
I was thinking of overlocking/serging the edges as they are going to be hidden inside the lining but I also want to make the dress really well using the best techniques so was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I thought of french seams but the fabric is quite bulky and they won’t be seen from the inside. Are there any specific techniques that couture houses use? I really want the dress to be beautifully made. Thanks!
