for it and everything, but I still get spots where the long piece doesn't curl completely under, and I get exposed edges which I either have to go back and fix, or forget.
I just realized what made me enter this turn of events regarding flat fells. This chef's jacket requires extensive flat-felled seams on its many seams. I'm using some very unravelly sueded poly, backed with some flannel for body and warmth. There's no way I can get this combination to roll under, so I just decided to become a conscientious objector.
There are some places a felled seam just will not go. If you are mounting the outer cloth on the lining rather than sewing them separately, this is one of them! Serge and press and top-stitch: there are limits to insanity!
