I’m sorry if this is the wrong place to post this….if it is, would you be so kind as to point me to a board where I could get help with this? I’ve been looking for a dress that I saw in a movie for like 2 years now and I’ve come very close to finding it but I later found high definition pictures of a scene and unfortunately the seams of the dress are something I’ve never seen before. I think it would help me greatly if I had a name to it and maybe even to the seams connecting the top and skirt of the dress.

I’m pretty sure these seams are not unique to bustier style tops/dresses as I’ve seen many before, but none like this.

here’s also the link so you can see it a big larger…..http://oi44.tinypic.com/10qhvec.jpg
I was able to zoom in and crop the area to see the seams the best.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    Suggestion: search ‘Faggoting’ seam.

      Thanks for your response…would that be related to the stitching technique itself? or the actual “open seam” is the only way I can think to call it. I’ve never seen anything where the 2 parts of the seam don’t touch…..but I did google and it spoke of victorian corsets but had a lot of showing how to do it….I’ll keep reading but if you could clarify a bit more that would be awesome..I’ve been up all night working on a project sorry if I’m kind of brain dead

    Yes, that seam is stitched using ‘faggoting’ – a popular method of doing fancy hems on Victorian undies! NOT to be used where there is any strain on the seam, without serious strengthening of the bars and the fabric edge.
