How to Get an Accurate 5/8″ Seam Allowance with a 5-Thread Stitch

Hey Everyone,  I had a little fun with this today’s video.  Anyone watch John Oliver?  He did this fun story about people directing traffic in Bolivia wearing Zebra costumes…  Apparently the traffic is so bad there, they came up with the idea of slowing drivers down with dancing Zebras…  Sort of like crossing guards without the reflective vest.  Well while shooting an episode of The Baby Lock Ovation Serger Manual one of the zebras decided to visit my studio.    So, while I’m showing you how to get an accurate 5/8″ seam allowance using the 5-Thread stitch on your serger, this little guy is busy helping me.

Seriously, if you have questions about how to get an accurate seam allowance, please let me know 🙂
