Slip Basting

The Tailoress PDF Sewing Patterns - Slip Basting

Used to invisibly attach one piece of fabric to another. Good for using on fabric where patterns or stripes need to be matched.

Fold and press seam allowance of top fabric. Pin onto seam allowance of under fabric. Work right to left. Secure thread. Take approximately 1cm stitches through under fabric then through seam allowance of top fabric. This results in a regular basting stitch on the wrong side of the fabric and no stitches showing on the right side.
