Put the fabric under the presser foot so
1
that the seamline (or arrowhead point) is
approximately 3 mm (1/8 inch) to the left
of the center of the presser foot.
This stitch works best with a seam allowance
of approximately 5 mm (3/16 inch) as this
allows the right (zigzag) side of the stitch to
overlock the cut edge of the fabric.
1 5 mm (3/16 inch)
2 3 mm (1/8 inch)
• If the seam allowance is wider than the stitch
pattern, trim away any excess fabric after
stitching.
