Sewing Method, mock reverse coverstich on a home sewing machine.

On my inexpensive Walmart Brother Project Runway CE1100 (bought on sale for about $100). The best choice is stitch number 52, with a stitch length of 2mm and width of 7mm, using a basic cone thread 100% poly.

Stitch I use for the mock reverse coverstitch. It is an un-named stich on my Brother home sewing machine.

Every machine make and model is different you may get similar results using similar stitch and setting, but likely will have to tweak them a bit for best results with your machine.

First, do a construction seam as usual, but with a scant 1/4″ or 5mm seam allowance.  Then flip to the right side to topstitch with the decorative stitch.  I finger press open the seam on the wrong side before I start stitching.
