I love topstitching! A couple of tips that make it easy:
- use a topstitching needle (it does make a difference!)
- use a blind hem foot to flollow the edge of the section to be topstitched: this will keep the seam to a fixed distance.
The final result will be neat and professional.

I too love topstitching, or at least the look if it :) and I use the blind hem foot of which (to me) makes it easier to stay where I want to be. I have NEVER tried a topstitching needle tho and really appreciate your tip. I will definately try it. Thanks.
