Settings for Serpentine Stitch on Brother Quattro.

Work on the back.  Note that side seams are OPEN for ease of stitching decorative appliques.

Seam trimmed extremely close to stitching.

IUh oh - this edge is 'flopping ' to the outside.  A binding will 'fix' it.  



ct-10
Cross-cut strip of coral jersey is used to bind the neckline.  Stitched to right side, up and around, then stitch in ditch and trim close.
