Sewing a frilly sleeve and hemline and Discount code

To create a frilled, lettuce edge on your fabrics using your overlocker is very easy and straightforward.

simply set the machine for a rolled hem and tug on your fabric as it feeds through, the stretch caught by the tiny stitches will force the fabric to take a wavy shape as the reduced differential ratio of the feed dogs will stretch out the fabric too, creating smaller waves, aka, frills.

Insert a Woolly nylon thread in only one of the loopers, I use it in the upper looper for greatest effect. The bulky thread fills up the gaps between the stitches, giving a fuller, richer stitch that gives the end result a professional touch.
