   STITCHES USED          IN   MILLINERY 
      AND THEIR APPLICATION 
                (Diagram XLIII.) 
Tacking.-Tacking-stitch is used for joins and all 
           parts that require more closely holding 
           together, to expedite uniting them to- 
           gether. 
Running.-Running-stitch is employed in making 
           the hem of head-lining and short items 
           of millinery, which may or may not be 
           intended to be full on the thread, yet in 
           which a drawn effect is not desirable. 
Under-hemming.--Under hem-stitch is used when 
           sewing down cut edges singly. 
Slip-stilch.-The slip-stitch is used for all parts 
           requiring invisibly joining together, as 
           the two pieces covering under and top 
           of hat brim. 
Slip-hemming.-This stitch is used in making roll- 
           hems. 
French-hemming.-French-hemming is not so much 
           a stitch as a method of making a hem 
           which is neat on both sides, and in 
           which two stitches are employed, i.e. 
           running-stitch and slip hem-stitch.
