How does the overlock sewing machine work?

At the time only reserved for professional dressmakers, Overlock enjoys sewing machineNowadays, it is becoming increasingly popular in private households. This is mainly because the result of the finished sewing works much cleaner than conventional household sewing machines. The Overlock sewing machines are equipped with a sharp knife located on the outer edge, which automatically cuts off the excess fabric edges. In addition, the seams are a lot more durable and elastic than in the conventional. It is at the same time worked with two, three, four or even five seams, also known as Überwendlichs- or Überwendlingsnaht. Thus, when sewing solid fabrics, e.g. Denim fabrics using double-needle double-chain stitching, while for fine and light fabrics, e.g. Tulle or silk, the three-thread rolled hem is used. Just curly skirt and sleeve hem seem very decorative. The Flatlocknaht in turn is ideal for decorative stitching or stretchy hems and is therefore also used as a connecting seam or wrinkles. The three-thread seam is used for overcasting and the four-thread composite seam is used for simultaneous sewing and overcasting.

What forms of overlock sewing machines are still available?

1. Coverlock sewing machine: This is a special form in which the knife is missing. As a result, a central stitching is possible. In addition, you can make round seams with the help of a free arm.
2. Combined Overlock Coverlock Machine: This is a combined form of both types that allows the knife to be folded away or removed as needed.

this can get stuck.
it does not stay in place and takes off.
the thread breaks and thus no clean seam is formed.

What should be considered when buying

The commonly used thickness of an overlock yarn is 40/2. The first number indicates the thickness of the yarn and the second number behind the slash indicates the number of yarns in which the yarn has been twisted.
It is also important to make sure when buying that the overlock yarn is available in different lengths. This can be a run length of about 2700 m to about 5000 m.
Overlock yarn is mostly made of polyester because this material has the best properties. It does not tear easily and has fewer irregularities and nodules. Thus, the polyester has a positive influence on the durability of the seam and on the entire sewing result.
Overlock yarns are available individually in neutral colors or in sets.
