Whether you call it a flat fell seam, or a flat felled seam, it's a great option for a seam that's very strong and cleanly finished. You'll encounter the flat fell seam in ready-to-wear most often in better men's shirts and in jeans (usually the inseams). We home sewists have to go through several steps to recreate what factories sew in just seconds, but the results are worth it when you need a neat and durable finish.
