I recently sewed jeans and had trouble with topstitching. Getting two even lines of stitching, especially around curves, is tough! I didn't have the appropriate twin needle and flaws were noticeable in the contrasting thread.

I sewed a third line between the first two using matching thread and it camouflaged any unevenness. I thought it was really cool and wanted to share.
