1. A French seam is a strong seam, often used in couture sewing, because it helps prevent raveling of sheer, lightweight fabrics, like chiffons, georgettes, organza, and organdy, without showing serged or raw edges. It is sewn unlike other seams, in that the first stitches are sewn with wrong sides facing, and a casing is made for the edges.
