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.

Thank you for that information. It was clearly presented and easy to follow. The camera was close enough to the stitching for uaw to have a very clear view of what you were doing.

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.
