Lapped seams are a great way to help reduce bulk when it comes to sewing certain fabrics like fleece, and many heavy wools whose raw edges won't fray. The exposed raw edge give the garment a clean, flat seam with an organic and modern styling detail. But, achieving a perfectly executed lapped seam requires an acute attention to details to make them look professionally done vs. that homemade look.
The key to a perfect lapped seam is to use a rotary cutter, mark on the wrong side and use an edge/joining presser foot.
