No time for hand padstitching? If you own a blindhemmer you can do invisible padstitching with it. (See Photo) If not, padstitching can be done by machine stitching rows.

Rennie, it sounds like a wonderful idea. Can you explain more about the flind hemmer? Is there a certain technique?

Ann, a true blindstitch machine like the one that Rennie has uses a curved needle so you can stitch rows of padstitching just catching a thread of the fashion fabric - very similar to hand padstitching. I have the same machine as Rennie and I couldn't live without it.

Gorgeous Things, Gigi and I have the Tacsew 500. See it here I bought mine from George the Crafty Stitcher in Las Vegas for less than Allbrands shows here but that's been years ago. It's a hardy but portable semi-industrial machine that will always be a part of my sewing room. I don't use it every time I sew but when I do it saves ton's of time.

Thanks, this is an excellent tip. I also own the tacsew 500. I have tailored numerous blazers, but never thought to use my blind hemmer for pad stitching. Therefore, I opt to use fusible interfacing.

Jackson 1, if you look at the photo there is a triangular piece of weft interfacing on the lapel to the roll line. Straight of grain is on the roll line. This is in addition to the entire front piece being fused with interfacing. Jovani, would love to help you but not clear what help you need. What kind of machine to you have? What type of sewing are you looking to do? What is your sewing level currently?
