Pretty From The Inside

Hi everyone! I know it's been awhile since I've last posted. Hopefully you haven't forgotten about me. I've been super busy and haven't had time to shop, DIY or take pictures. Also, my serger jammed recently when I was trying to over-lock my friend's sweatshirt. I brought it to a local Brother dealership and they sure took their sweet time. I haven't DIY'ed much because I dislike making garments without over-locking the edges.
 Well, I remember a technique called the french seam which is great for really thin fabrics and makes the inside of your shirt look pretty and professional. This technique encapsulates the edges so you don't have raw edges hanging out (right pic below). It is pretty time consuming to finish your edges this way, but it's a nice alternative when you don't have a over-locking machine handy. I also played around with darts placement and moved it to the neckline rather than having it below the armhole.
