It's always a nice touch to decorate the inside facing seam on jackets where it attaches to the lining. On this jacket I had some rayon cording that matched perfectly. By using my beading foot on my Evolve serger, a 2 thread flatlock stitch, and 2 spools of invisible thread (Wonder Thread) I quickly and easily accomplished this task.

That looks very professional, Rennie! I guess a piping foot for the SM would work too?

Yes, I see no reason why this could not be done on the sewing machine. I have a serger fascination and had just finished a 4 day serger workshop, hence the motivation to try this. Next jacket, I want to flatlock ribbon floss. Looks like soutache braid trim. :-)
