Seam finishing

I often have the problem that I don't want to use zigzag stitch to finish the fabric edges. Double folded cotton seam binding or satin tape works well for somewhat thicker fabrics but doesn't work for fine fabrics like cotton or linen.
There is a great tutorial on the Lilacs and Lace blog here about seam finishing with a rayon seam binding. This seems to be fine and delicate and won't make the seams heavy and stiff.
I still have to look around here in the Netherlands for the 'Hug Snug' rayon tape. Anyone experience with it?
