Remove the garment from the machine, pull all your threads to the wrong side and knot them.
Bury the threads by threading them onto a needle (1 or 2 at a time) and take a single stitch just through the under layer of the seam allowance. Cut off the threads.
On the wrong side of the garment, trim the excess seam allowance very close to the stitching with the applique scissors.
Design your own dresses with the latest special price technique kit.
