Turn and stitch seam finish

I use this finish on firmly woven fabrics that are not heavy,
and when I'm too lazy to change my serger thread.

I've sewn the seam with my 5/8" seam allowance,
and now I'm turning each edge over to the wrong side, and stitching it down.

the finished seam, pressed open.

for seams that will be pressed to one side (like crotch curves and armholes),
I sew my seam, then trim one seam allowance in half.

now I fold the other seam allowance onto the trimmed seam allowance,
thereby enclosing it, and stitch.

the finished armhole seam.
