4 Trim the thread tails at the beginning and end of the seam. 5 Press the seam open. EXPERT TIP If the fabric doesn’t feed, lengthen the stitch to 3mm. Triple Straight Stitch In triple straight stitch, the machine takes one stitch forward, one back, and one forward again. This makes a very strong seam, ideal for high-stress seams such as a pants crotch. Since the feed dogs move the fabric back and forth, this stitch has stretch and is perfect for seaming knits. It is excellent for topstitching in a contrasting color as the stitches are heavier than a basic straight stitch.
6 To lock in the stitch, adjust the selector to straight stitch, change the stitch length to 0mm, and work three to four stitches. Trim off the threads and cut open the buttonhole, using either a seam ripper or scissors. EXPERT TIP Buttonholes don’t just have to be used with buttons; try using them as drawstring openings.
EXPERT TIP Topstitching is a good way to hold a seam allowance in place and keep edges flat. It can also be purely decorative. You can also press your seams open and then topstitch down either side of the seam. Straight Blind Hem Stitch The straight blind hem stitch is made up of several straight stitches and a large zigzag to the left. It is used for hemming woven fabrics and is practically invisible from the right side where you will see only a tiny stitch every ½" (13mm) or so.
