Sewing using an Flatlock Sewing Machine

The Flatlock Stitch or Flatseamer creates a flat, comfortable stitch often used in underwear and athletic apparel.

Flatseamer or Flatlock Stitching

The Flatlock Stitch is characterized by the absence of layers folding to the inside. For this reason the pattern will not present any seam allowance: the cut edges of fabric are approached one next to the other joined flat in a single layer with thread.

This stitching technique is mostly used in Sportswear/Activewear, Underwear and Childwears because it minimizes the fabric bulk and assure comfort.
