Hej från Sweden!

I have been searching everywhere for help, no one seems to know what I mean. I hope you can help me.
I was watching TV, the second season premier of Lie To Me. Jennifer Beal was wearing a light grey suit with black trim, but the black trim was located at each seam. It was beautiful! How can someone section each pattern piece to where the seam is either trimmed or piped?

It looked as if parts of the under collar was visible. And that some black material was injected into the seam to become visible.

See the Fox interview of Lie To Me with Jennifer Beal and examine the suit she is wearing.

Please help and explain this type of sewing, please!

Tack så mycket,
Avsjö

Hallo, I had a look although I could only see the top of the jacket. I dont know how to change that. I wondered if it was actually piping in a darker colour inserted in the seam. A clever idea and piping can actually go a tremendous way if done well . What do you think and how can i get the whole jacket in view ?

I agree with Winifred and think it's piping set into the seam, then top stitching in the same colour about 1/2" in. So you get the same view both sides. Beautifully done. Definitely a challenge.

Since the entire jacket is not visible on film, one can assume that the jacket is styled with princess seaming, as well as having a seam down the center of the sleeve. To achieve this look, one would insert black piping into the seams before sewing the seams together. The collar appears to be topstitched with black thread; however, black piping could also be inserted. To obtain the sleeve look, you can make a seam down the center of the sleeve pattern and allow for seam allowances. I hope this helps!

Hi Avsj, It's black piping with 1/2" topstitch at the seam. The jacket is a modified shawl collar with a dart where the shoulder meets the neckline. They just turned a fit aspect into a style feature by inlaying the piping in that location. Otherwise its very easy to section a flat pattern piece to add piping. You just decide where you want the style line to go, cut the pattern and add seam allowance to the cut area. Sew those pieces together first then construct your garment as usual.
