Sewing Method, Seam finish using an un-named deco stitch on fleece.
Experimenting with different stitches on my inexpensive Walmart Brother Project Runway CE1100 home sewing machine.
Trying to recreate the look of a reverse coverstich, it is a very popular seam finish on sport and activewear of late.
Will be making some stylish hoodie jackets soon. and looking at seam embellishments and finishing methods and techniques.
I first did a regular construction seam with a 1/4″ or 6mm seam allowance, than finger pressed the open seam and used a strip of foldover elastic to cover it and put in sewing machine, and topstitched with stitch number 52 an un-named decorate stitch on my machine, using stitch length of 2mm and stitch width of 7mm.
Came out nicely, from a few feet away you can not tell which kind of stitch it is, and would pass as a reverse coverstitch.
I do this method post for those who do not have a coverstich or serger. and would like to have similar looking results. These methods and techniques to take some extra time, but for a garment that will last for years and has a look that was handmade by an artisan, it is worth it.
