MANY, MANY years ago I used this method, also using a chain stitch for belt loops on shirtwaist dresses. Edith
Excellent tutorial! Thank you so much, I have had to repair some french tacks that broke (bottom of pants and lining) and did it "my way"; not having known the correct way before. Unfortunately, I "like things to be done correctly", or as others call me a "perfectionist. Truly I am not, but I like symmetry and correct function.
Excellent tutorial, thank you!
I just had to share! I have opportunity to use this technique! Thank you again!
Thanks for the reminder about this techique, I too have used it but had forgotten the name for it...........too many years since tailoring classes!
That was cool! And you made it look so simple. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!
Isn't she great?! It's nice to see some real techniques that you can use again and again. I am a fan!
Thank you for sharing your tutorials. It is helpful to see so many different methods and tricks of sewing. And learning the names for them.
I have done that before when replacing coat linings and such. I just never knew what
the name of it was. Also instead of doing the blanket stitch, I do a hand chain stitch
and I do the same thing for a loop at the top of a blouse for a single botton. It works
much faster and is just as neat.
