A linguistic curiosity

I have two reference books that I use for sewing:  one french and one english.  I just discovered this distinction between the two languages when it comes to seams:

(French seam in english; english seam in french.  Hmmmm.)


  1. hmm! that is really interesting and funny! :D thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi - I did not notice your comment until today! (I never thought of anyone else reading this except myself, so never bothered to check for comments, strangely enough)
    BTW, I like your kitchen remodel; we bought a fairly new house 3 years ago, but are gradually suffering through renos bit by bit. More starting on Monday....

  3. Hahaha!! This is so funny! I never knew this (probably because I sew mainly in English!)
    Ok, I know this is a pretty old post, but I just discovered your blog and have been browsing...
    and I am yet another sewing scientist living in Quebec. How nice! I'll be back!
