Making a French Seam.
An even French seam may be made by inserting
the two edges to be joined, wrong sides together,
in slot 1 or 2 and stitching close to the edge ; then
folding both right sides together and inserting the
back of the seam into slot 1 again and stitching
with just enough margin to conceal the raw edges.
See Fig. 129.

to right or left for the desired width of tuck, up to

may be easily creased by folding the material at the desired distance from the
previous tuck, and then running the length of the fold over a straight edge
such as the edge of the sewing machine cabinet. The secret of good tucking
lies in a light tension, short stitch, and fine thread and needle.
