SEWING BASICS

Sewing stretch fabrics

First, baste the pieces of fabric together, and then sew
without stretching the fabric.

Using the stretch stitches or the thread for knits gives

Sewing an even seam
allowance
To sew an even seam, start sewing so that the seam
allowance is to the right of the presser foot, and the
edge of the fabric is aligned with either the right edge
of the presser foot or a marking on the needle plate.
■ Aligning the fabric with the presser foot
Sew while keeping the right edge of the presser
foot aligned with a fixed distance from the edge of
the fabric.

Memo
If the straight stitch (left needle position,
triple stretch stitch, basting stitch etc.) is
selected, you can change the distance
between the seam and the right edge of the
presser foot by changing the stitch width. For
details, refer to "Changing the needle
position" (page 83).

■ Aligning the fabric with a needle plate marking
The markings on the needle plate show the
distance from the needle position of a seam sewn
with the straight stitch (left needle position). Sew
while keeping the edge of the fabric aligned with a
marking in the needle plate. The distance between
the markings in the upper scale is 1/8 inch (3 mm)
and the distance between the markings in the grid
is 5 mm (3/16 inch).
