Smearing covering color

I am covering a plane with blue on the top and white on the bottom. I am trying to overlap the blue over the white for a nice uniform looking seam. The problem is that it is hard to cut the covering straight and very close to the edge. I use a sharp pair of scissors and run them down the edge and can get pretty close but there is still a tiny bit of overlap and it's not quite flush. When I seal it down the blue covering smears across the white. This was done using a fresh sock, you can see what it looked like when I was done. I need to do a 55" wing and ailerons like this. What do I do?
