Sewing Method, Mock Reverse Coverstitch Alternative Decorative Stitches.
I have had several people contact me, that the stitch I used is not available on their machine, and wanted some guidance on other possible decorative stitches they can use for the mock reverse coverstitch on a home sewing machine.
The machine I am using is an inexpensive Walmart edition Brother CE1100 Project Runway. Each maker of sewing machines has their own selection of decorative stitches, I would recommend that you try out several of them and find ones that give you the look and performance that you need. The bonus is that several of the decorative stitches also are stretch stitches, just never mentioned in manuals.
Your machine may and will have different stitches, best to try some out and see which one you like.
Below are several that worked but not as well as number 52 for me.
Stitch 16 works but is a double stitch, shows up as a very bold stitch, if you want that it will work, a change I would recommend is to reduce the length to 1mm, and width to widest possible (7mm on my machine).
Stitch 29, is 3 rd alternative, it is a double stitch, very heavy, recommend default stitch length and widest stitch possible (7mm on my machine).
