Vintage Photos for Inspiration: Flat Felled Seam Instructions

A flat felled seam.  The seam was first basted together on the seamline, then the edges were pressed under and blindstitched down.  This is an excellent way to sew strong seams on couture garments.  I basting thread is probably supposed to be removed, but this will weaken the seam.
