Finishing The Back Seam

You have several options for finishing the back seam. One of the easiest is to zigzag stitch over both seam allowances, then trim close to the outer edge of the stitch (being careful NOT to cut the stitches themselves), as illustrated in the picture above.

You may also wish to consult your sewing book about other possible seam finishes.

However, you can choose not to finish the seam at all. In that case, you should press the seam open to make it lay nicely.
