Got here from your boot cover tutorial on pinterest. Having never heard of French seams or seen how to do it before, this tutorial has totally changed my (sewing) life. THANK YOU.

I don't really use french seams, though of course I love the idea of seeing no raw edge!

My brain is having a hard time fathoming that it's as easy when the seam is a curve, but maybe I'm just having a hard time visualizing it >.< Doesn't the fabric pull funny? French seams are best used on straight seams, am I right?

Also another point is that when working with a pattern, the seam allowance needs to be doubled, since you're sewing the seam twice! I can only imagine the agony of realizing the garment is too small!

I honestly have no idea how they'd work on a curve but I'll look into it! Since this is a technique generally used for fabrics involved in intimate apparel I think it probably wouldn't be that much of an issue since delicate fabrics would be less likely to be all bubbly and retarded.

nah, it should basically take up about 1/2 inch seam allowance if you're doing it right. Just make your first seam with VERY little seam allowance and it shouldn't be a problem, I think.
