1. Make a test sample before beginning gar
ment construction to test machine settings.
(See page 21 for adjusting stitch balance.)

• Baste the garment together on the seam
allowance and fit in usual way.
• After making any necessary adjustments,
trim seam edge evenly to a scant 1/4-

• Place trimmed seam under the foot so
that the straight stitches fall on the
basted seam line and zig-zag stitches fall
over the seam edge.
