MODULE 1 • 3 Thread Overlock Seam
|1A||To begin this lesson, we have prepared two pieces of wool jersey measuring 7” (17.78cm) in the width grain x 9” (22.86cm) length grain. This seam finish is also used on other types of light to medium weight knits.|
|1B||We paired our wool jersey pieces and marked an X with our tailor’s chalk on the wrong side of each piece. Then we put the right sides of the fabric facing each other.|
|2A||For this lesson we are using the Brother 3034D Lock Overlock Machine set to overlock, with 2 threaded needles.|
