The corded seam is a professionai treatment
for slipcovers, children’s clothes, blouses,
and lingerie. To make a corded seam, make
the welting first (or buy it ready-made at a no­
tions counter), then stitch it into the seam. For
both steps, use the zipper foot to place the
stitching close to the cord.

CAUTION: Use the pattern selector to select
straight stitch before attaching zipper foot to

the machine. This eliminates the possibility of

needle breakage.
