For items of clothing can you sew your pieces together instead of whip stitching?

You could run it through a sewing machine, but you would have to have a seam allowance, and I don't know if you could trust the stitching to have the strength of whip stitching.

I know that commercially made knitted items are often machine sewn, but  the closest to this I've come across in crochet was the idea of hand sewing pieces together using a matching thread when you don't want the bulk of using the yarn on thicker items.

If it's more strength you want (or just want to avoid whip stitching), you may want to try crocheting the pieces together using slip stitch.
