More testing of Mock Reverse Coverstitch

Sewing Method, more testing of the mock reverse coverstitch on a home sewing machine.

Sewing Method, still working on the mock reverse cover stitch.

Using a decorative stitch to give the look of a reverse cover stitch using only a home sewing machine.

On my Brother CE1100 inexpensive sewing machine I am using stitch 52, width 7mm, length 1.6mm

The fabric is polar fleece from Joann’s, it is an expensive fleece, purchased it on clearance sale, and used a 20% off coupon, was about $1.93 a yard. Going to be doing some hoodies jackets soon, wanted so more interesting seam finishes on them.

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

I used some contrasting thread for better visibility and so see how it would possible look garment.  The plan is to use same color thread at fabric.

Did the construction seam in a few different ways, first the usual a 5/8″ or 1.5cm seam allowance, then the mock reverse coverstitch goes through 2 layers of fleece.

Then did a small zigzag overcast on the raw edges of the fleece, with right sides together, and finially did a butted up seam with just the mock
reverse coverstitch as both the finish and the joining seam.

Did the mock reserver coverstitch, with the zigzag overcast seam, the topstitch is going through one one layer of fabric, making finished garment very flat and neater looking.

Did the mock reverse coversticth on the seam with the 5/8" or 1.5cm seam allowance.  The topstiching going through 2 layers of fleece fabric, leaves a valley in fabric at the seam.
