How would you recommend finishing princess seams on a blouse where the fabric is lightweight or slightly sheer?

Polyester-cotton voile is the fabric I'm using. The pattern is 7189 Burda, view A.

Thanks!

I agree--french seams, or narrow flat-felled seams will also work. I have some old (19th/early 20th c) white cotton undergarments that all have tiny flat-felled seams, and they are beautiful. You may need to baste by hand.

Thanks, mmcp and goodworks1!

I'm kind of wishing my DD hadn't picked such a lightweight fabric, but oh well. It should be pretty.
