For my Master Sewing & Design Certificate, I have to produce a sample of a standing fell seam as well as a flat fell seam. I have the flat fell seam licked but what the heck is a standing fell seam? Anyone???

(ps - thanks to you all in advance because I will be posting many more questions while I complete this program!)

Could you list the book title that you referred to? It's no longer on Google Books. Thanks!

This should work...

It's under "Self Bound Seam"
It seems to be in Claire Shaeffer's book Couture Sewing Techniques...

Also, another book - The Complete Book of Sewing Shortcuts:

I don't know if this is the same link, but I found these descriptions of standing fell seam through Google Books:

Standing Fell Seam, Google Books, from The Complete Book of Sewing Shortcuts by Claire B Shaeffer, 1981
You can get a used copy of this book at Amazon. It's out of print, and uses line drawings, which is typical of sewing and craft books of this era.

Self-bound seam, also referred to as a standing fell seam, Google Books,Couture Sewing Techniques, Claire B. Shaeffer, 2011
