In the meantime, for those of you who don't know how (I just learned myself) here is how to do a slip-stitch. The Mary Jane slippers that I just finished required such a technique and while the instructions were very clearly written, I was feeling particularly thick and couldn't make sense of it. That's where my collection of sewing books came in handy. After looking up 'slip-stitch' in 3 different books, it clicked.
Here's hoping that one of these 3, or all of them, will make sense to you, because once I got it, I was able to finish an open seam flawlessly, and I felt like a domestic Goddess after.
