Ribbing Application

The Overedge Stretch Stitch makes sewing seams on knits look as though
they were finished on a serger. This stitch is stronger and more durable
than overlock/serger stitching. The stitch incorporates a straight stitch and
a finishing stitch into one operation. This allows for
professional finish on projects, and is especially
popular on sweatshirts.
