Topstitching

10:24 PM


Topstitching: Decorative stitching on an article and adds interest and detail. It is usually parallel to the seam line and sometimes is done using a contrasting color of thread. Topstitching always makes a garment look more sporty and less formal. Topstitching is at least 3/16" away from the seam line (not to be confused with edgestitching) and it may be multiple rows of stitching.

Edgestitching: Decorative stitching that is done right next to a seam (1/8" or less from seam line). Edgestitching is usually intended for a more subtle detailed look.
