Kate from See Kate Sew gives a quick tutorial showing how to fix a crooked line of topstitching. She picks the stitches back to where they’re straight and pretty, and then starts a new line of stitching – and she does it without overlapping the two lines of stitching (and thus creating a darker stitch line that calls attention to your fix). Brilliant!! She shares the tip as part of her Pleat Weeks series, but you can use this technique any place where your topstitching needs a quick fix. Get the tute.
