The overlock stitch is excellent for use on
fine fabrics such as nylon tricot. Lingerie
or tricot seams should only be about


inch finished width .

If your pattern has wide seams, trim them

down ‘to /Л inch while Cutting out the
pattern. Guide the raw edges of the fabric

into the center of the presser foot. On the
right, the needle will stitch over the edge
resulting in a finished rolled seam of


inch. If a pucker results when stitching,

a looser tension is needed.

Stitching in this manner can also be used

to form a rolled hem on the raw edge of
a scarf.

The overlock stitch gives a very finished
appearance to elastic application. (Fig.

tion on Page 35, but use this stitch instead
of the multiple stitch zigzag.


This stitch gives a very effective means of
sewing fake furs and soft leathers to
produce a seam with no bulk. It is also

very effective in a contrasting color as a
decorative accent for special seams, such
as raglan sleeves or for applying an edge
trim. (Fig. 110)

Place the bulk of your fabric to the right
of the needle and the raw edge so that the
needle will swing off the fabric at the left.
(Fig. Ill ) The left side of the stitch will

be formed off of the fabric to provide a
very strong seam with -only a tiny seam

allowance. For better results loosen up­
per tension. Pull the seam open from the

right side until the "rungs" of the ladder

appear. The "rungs" become a decorative
accent if a contrasting thread is used. On
fake fur, the nap can be pulled up with a
needié to hide the stitches and create an
invisible seam.
