There are many occasions when it is necessary to stitch an invisible seam on the outside of your upholstered work, some resort to gimp pins or staples, others to fancy nails to cover the seam. However it is surprisingly easy and quick to simply “slip stitch” (sometimes called ladder stitch) the seam together, achieving an almost invisible join. Ordinary sewing thread is not suitable. It is not essential to match the colour perfectly with your fabric. In fact you should be able to sew black fabric with white thread and it should still be invisible.
