A regular machine stitch (usually 1/8" parallel to the stitch line) applied while the garment is being assembled in order to support garment edges and to preserve the shape.

    marking a garment is hard work and something that will take you time and effort. Should you choose to not Stay Stitch then you will risk the fabric stretching and your finished garment looking out of shape- meaning that your efforts will be wasted.

    As well as this if you are sewing together two pieces of fabric, one cut on the bias (also known as “off straight of grain”) and one cut on the straight of grain they will be easier to sew together if you have stabilised the fabric and stopped is stretching.http://autobookcollector.tumblr.comhttp://aviandoline.hatenablog.comhttps://denisheri.wordpress.com

    Staystitching is invisible in your finished project but is part of the hidden bones that give it shape and strength, and a neat symmetrical finish. It is a row of stitching within the seam allowance on curved or angled cut edges. It can typically be found on necklines, around the armhole and on bias grain lines such as a v-neck.https://rapuncelclara.wordpress.com/ http://stellaciani.blog.com/ http://www.voiceblog.jp/sakurania/
