SLANT OVEREDGE STITCH
Although the slant overedge stitch may be used creatively, it is primarily applied in finish
ing seams, hems and facing edges. Use it to overedge seams that require stretch such as
crotch seams. It is particularly helpful in ski suit, snowsuit and swimsuit construction.

Make a test sample to determine the suitability
of an overedge seam finish for your garment.
Duplicate the grain or direction of knit of your
garment seam. Adjust thread tension to suit
fabric. Use an appropriate needle in the
machine for a synthetic knit. (See Fabric,
Thread and Needle Table on page 8.)
• Baste the garment together on the seam line
allowing for 1.5cm (5/8 inch) seam allowance
and fit in the usual way.
• After making any necessary adjustments,
trim seam edge evenly to a scant 5mm (1/4
inch) from seam line basting.
• Place trimmed seam under the foot so that the
straight stitches fall on the basted seam line
and slanted stitches fall over the seam edge.
