• Overlook stitching is used for seaming and finishing the cut edge of
knit fabrics, all in one operation.
• This overlook stitch is especially good for stretch fabrics such as
double knit and jersey and will give a firm, neat edge finish.
• For a finished 1/4" seam, guide your fabric at the right hand
edge of the needle hole as shown.
• When your pattern calls for a 5/8" seam allowance, guide your
fabric along the
" guide line on the needle plate and sew your
seam. Then trim off the excess fabric close to the stitching. On
some fabrics this method is preferable.
Note: The three step zigzag stitch can also be used for overcasting.
