A French seam is when the raw edges are hidden in the seam allowance of a garment. French seams are constructed by doing double the work- half the width of the seam allowance is sewn, then the garments is turned inside out and the other half is sewn. Tidy, durable and a mark of quality. Often found on garments made of sheer fabrics, and mandatory on dress shirts.
