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.

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.

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.
