Seams, seams, seams

As part of the pattern cutting unit at college we have to demonstrate basic skills including seams. At the beginning of the unit I included a sample of an open seam in Calico, but I have decided to try an one in harder fabrics. I have used Faux fur and Faux Leather.

Faux Leather:
The material was quite soft as it wasn't real leather therefore it was easier to sew through and to open the seam.

Faux Fur:
The material was quite thick when moving through the machine and the fur got everywhere. But when it was sewn and the fur was fluffed to cover the seam it has worked quite well.
