OVER CAST FINISH :---This is a common method used for both thic and thin

materials that fray easily. It is useful for narrow seams

and also for seam that receive hard wear or extra strain .

Such as armholes and waist lines . After making the plain

seam pressed the seam open and worked over casting

stitches over the raw edges of the two seam allowances

separately . Avoid tight stitches in order to prevent edges

for puckering on seams of armholes or yokes press the seam

allowances to one side and overcast the two edges together .

In stead of overcasting blanket stitch or zigzag

machining can be done on the raw edges of the seam allowances .
