Fashion Accessories Creating garments often times requires the use of several different accessory feet and/or attach- ments to complete your creation. Don’t forget that there are also many accessories that will make the construction process even easier, such as using one of the many different hemmer feet to finish a hem on a garment. Be sure to have all of the best accessories available at your fingertips to create a professional looking masterpiece! Blindstitch Foot #5 – Excellent for blind hems, but has other uses such as tacking down long, straight facings (as in the front of an unlined jacket or coat), attaching patch pockets “invisibly”, and hand-look appliqué. Tailor Tack Foot #7 - Designed to make tailor tacks to transfer pattern mark- ings, it is also used for decorative work such as fringing and fagoting (joining two fabric edges, this technique adds a decorative touch to yokes, pockets, skirt hems, etc.). Edgestitch Foot #10/10C – Edgestitching, topstitching, and understitching are so easy with this foot! Narrow hems, even on formalwear, are easy to stitch, as are French seams on sheer and lightweight fabrics. Straight Stitch Foot #13 – Excellent for seaming, the small needle opening focuses the point of the needle; use with the straight stitch throat plate and a Sharp needle for a perfect straight stitch. Jeans Foot #8 works well for heavy bridal silks and satins.

Button Sew-On Foot #18 – The adjustable “pin” of Foot #18 lets you determine the thread shank length when attaching buttons – especially useful when stitching heavy coats and jackets so buttons won’t be too snug. Remove the “pin” to attach buttons firmly with no thread shank at all – great for adding decorative buttons as embellishments and for tacking layers fabric together. Piping Foot #38 – This “straight-stitch-only” foot is used to make mini-piping and for uneven sewing surfaces such as when sewing on heavy trims or stitching on a jacket next to an edge with bulky seam allowances. Page 2 Fashion Accessories BERNINA® Stitch Regulator #42 (BSR) - Free-motion embellishment is easier than ever with the BSR, enabling even the novice sewer to simply and concisely add free-form decorative elements to fabrics and surfaces. Also for quilting and/or stitching layers of material together. Walking Foot #50 – No need to avoid slippery or hard-to-handle fabrics, as this foot holds the fabric layers together as they move under the needle. Great for matching stripes or plaids with no slippage. Hemmer Feet #61 - #69 – Available in several versions, these hemmer feet double-turn the fabric and feed it under the needle for stitching in one opera- tion. The feet offer different sizes for the finished hems and can be used with a straight stitch (#62 and #64) or a zigzag/decorative stitch (#61, #63, and #66). Feet #68 and #69 are roll and shell hemmers that produce scalloped hems, especially effective on lingerie or when using lightweight, fine fabrics. Page 3 Fashion Accessories Lap Seam Feet #70 and #71 – These presser feet easily produce lapped (also called flat-felled) seams. Often seen in ready-to-wear sportswear, the most familiar uses of flat-felled seams are in blue jeans and men’s tailored shirts. This type of seam is also a good choice for reversible garments, as both sides of the seam are completely finished. Bias Binder Attachment #84 with Binder Foot #94 – Bind edges in just one step! Speed your construction time by eliminating facings and binding neck edges, armholes and hems, especially on lightweight garments; also excellent for Hong Kong seam finishes. Page 4
