Beginner Stitching Zigzag Stitch

by Mrs. Moriya Chesler

I hope you have had much success with your beginner straight stitching based on the last lesson. Today I am going to show you how to design a very easy-to-make modest skirt that you can wear all the time.

Zigzag Stitching

I would like to continue with the zigzag stitch that you can find on your sewing machine. This stitch is useful in many ways. You can use the zigzag stitch as a decorative stitch, a seam finish, a stitch for sewing elastics, making buttonholes, to name a few. We will be using the zigzag stitch as a seam finish in sewing our garments.


When using the zigzag stitch, you should also backstitch when you begin and when you end, with a 3-in tail. Snip off the tail when you sew your skirt.

You are ready to sew a simple but modest skirt. See this tutorial.
