Either the lower knife is too far to the left or your looper tensions are too loose. Check the position of the knife first.

SOURCE: I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn

Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.

How do I thread the elna 344D overlocker the picture doesn't explain where the cotton goes


Search for:

Make Model threading

Even if it is not your specific model, most overlockers (especially within the same brand and like models) will thread the same or very similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Also, thread each thread IN THE ORDER specified. Threading the threads out of order will cause havoc AND intense frustration!
