How-to Sew: Topstitch

 Brittany J. Jones

This video demonstrates how to sew a topstitch. A topstitch is a straight stitch that is done on the top of the garment. It’s like an edge stitch, but the top stitch is done ¼ inch away from the seam. For reference, denim garments typically have a topstitch and an edge stitch.
