After the bias binding, it’s time to sew: types of seams

There are several types of bias tape cuts, the resulting product of which must undergo a sewing process. A seam is the joining of two or more pieces of fabric, leather or other materials that are stitched together.

Overlapping seams

A type of stitching that starts with two or more pieces of material overlapping and joined near the edge with one or more rows of stitches.

Overlapping seams

In this type of stitching two or more materials are overlapped, which are joined with one or more rows of stitches.

Bonded seams

They are formed by folding a strip of piping over the edge of the stacks of material. Both edges of the piping are then joined to the material with one or more rows of stitching. Used on shirt collars.

Decorative or ornamental stitching

It consists of a series of stitches along a line or after an ornamental design on a fold of material. This type of stitching would not be possible without the properties of elastic bias binding.

Flat seams

A seam in which two fabric edges are joined over stitches. Used in garments such as underwear or corsetry to achieve a joint where the edges are butted, not overlapped.

Selvedge seams

This type of bias binding includes seams in which the edges are overlocked by stitching and are used when a finished edge is required. Useful for producing neat edges such as hems or invisible hems on trusses or facings.

Joining of separate elements

For this type of sewing, additional components such as elastic bands are required at the edges.

Simple construction

It consists of a piece of fabric that becomes two edges. It is usually used in loops.

Three fundamental elements for bias binding seam types

  • Seam size. It is measured by the depth, length, and width of the seam.

  • Seam Slip Force. The amount of force required to pull out a total of ¼ of the opposing sets of threads perpendicular to the seam line.

  • Sewing force. Refers to the force required to open the seam.
