How-to Sew: Stay Stitch

 Brittany J. Jones

This video shows how to sew a stay stitch. Stay stitching is used around necklines and curves to help keep those areas intact when constructing a garment. A stay stitch also acts as a guide when placing snips along a curve. It prevents you from snipping too close to the seam. Be sure to follow the direction of the arrows on the pattern directions.
