For even topstitching, I don't have an edgestitching foot, so I look at all of my presser feet. Feet have all sorts of edges which you can use to ride against a seam or an edge. With my Husqvarna, I often use the satin stitch foot (the "B" foot), the blind hem foot ("D") and the overcast foot ("J")--it has a "fence" which runs very nicely in the well of a seam if you need to understitch.

Glad to hear someone else does the same. For me, it is usually my zipper foot that comes out and does the job. I have an old edgestitch foot, but I actually prefer the zipper foot for simple things like attaching ribbon trim, etc.

It's a very helpful tip for me because I use a tape as a guide and sometimes I can not follow it well, I'll try your tecnique, it's simple, clean and fast, Thanks.
