TvA/0 different methods may be used.

Method # 1 (overedging) is recommended

for firm fabrics in garments where a J-

inch seam allowance is adequate. Method
#2 (mock overedging) is most appro­

priate for bulky knits and fabrics that have

a tendency to curl or fray and should be

used where a wider seam allowance is
needed. Make a test sample to help you

decide which method is best for your
fabric and garment. Be sure to duplicate
the cut of the garment seam in your test.

Remember to use a ball-point (yellow

band). Style 2045, Size 14 needle in
