I'm on a mission . . . to rid the world of the tacking stitch. It's very simple, but so many people do not do it.
That little X-shaped stitch across the vents of jacket, coats and skirts? It's know as a "tacking stitch" in tailoring/sewing circles. It is there only to make the garment hold up during shipping and to look good on the hanger, until you take it home.
Give yourself the once-over before leaving home; check for any tacking stitches and remove them. Spread the word!!
