This is a Video and Blog about using the Overcasting Foot on your sewing machine. I show how to install the foot, how to access and use the coordinating stitches that work with this foot and how to use one of the stitches in a creative way. I use the stitch to simulate the flatlocking stitch found in RTW active wear.

This foot is easy to use. The "toe" on the foot rides along the edge of your fabric while it's stitching. The foot also has a bar in the center of the foot that the machine stitches over to create the "overcasting effect". The bar also helps the stitches stay flat as it sews and keeps them from collapsing. Since this bar is in place, it's important to know that when using this foot, the fabric should always be pulled to the back of the machine when ending your stitching.

When I did the demo for the "fashion" stitching, I changed the foot so I could follow my seam line more easily. Contrasting top stitching is everywhere in Fashion right now, so I thought this would be an easy way to incorporate a decorative touch to a garment.
