Press the seam you just sewed. Then open your work and lay it flat on your ironing surface, right side down. Now, press the seam to one side. I just arbitrarily picked one side, because I'm sewing a center back seam on my BurdaStyle Anda dress. If you're sewing side seams, however, press the seams toward the back of the garment. As you can see, French seams work best when the seam is relatively straight and vertical, making this finish an excellent choice when you're joining side seams in a blouse or skirt. Not many skirts are joined to bodices in a French seam, nor sleeves to armholes.
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
