|19: Stitch to Stitch
or Horizontal Seams (cont.)
That will even out the row and stop the seam
distorting the shoulder by being too tight. The match is quite good,
but there is a spare stitch at the end of each seam [pic 7,8,9].
7: Shoulder seam is flat and neat,
but one stitch juts out at each end.
8: (left) Overhang of one stitch on top piece.
9: (right) One extra stitch on bottom piece.
It looks quite neat, and is an improvement
on a backstitch seam, but you can do even better!
The absolute, the perfect match is worked in the same way, except
you work the sequence of stitches on the top piece by leaving aside
the right hand thread of the first stitch and taking the needle
through behind the left-hand side of the first stitch and the right
hand side of the second stitch. These two halves of two stitches
form a V shape [pic 10].
To adjust to make a perfect match, move the sequence half a stitch
along on the top piece. You will see that the stitch you are using
on the top and bottom are both V shaped.
