Sometimes even when you measure and cut a pattern to fit your custom shape, the seams still rip. The next time you make clothes you don't have to face that fear, as long as you Do the Stretch Stitch. While you may think you know how to use a sewing machine, there's always more to learn. Use the stretch stitch in all of your clothing patterns. Also known as a triple stretch stitch due to its three overlapping stitches, this choice allows fabric to give when pressure is applied. This means that when you debut your newly sewn summer shorts, you can take a seat and breathe easy, thanks to the security of the stretch stitch.
