Would somebody be so kind as to explain what "understitching" is? I am
using an easy pattern to make a little girl's sun dress and the definition
they give for understitch is as follows:
UNDERSTITCH: Open out facing or underside of garment; stitch to seam
allowance close to seam.
I have read this sentence about 20 times yet I'm still not processing. I am
at a step where I have just sewn the bodice lining to the bodice. Then it
says "understitch lining as far as possible" Forgive my ignorance, but can
somebody clarify this for me? In case it wasn't obvious, I'm a beginner
when it comes to making clothing.
