OPEN VS. CLOSED SEAMS

How you press the seams of your garment should be guided by the weight of the fabric.

For heavy-weight fabric, press the seam open to reduce bulk.

For lightweight fabric, press the seam closed to add extra stability.


Closed Seam

Press the seam to one side.

Open Seam

Press along the center of the seam.
