Finish an Edge with a Triple Cordover Stitch | Insider Video

Try a hand-worked stitch the covers and embellishes garment edges, to prevent or camouflage wear and tear.

Kenneth D. King shares his experience with upcycling high-quality garments that show a little wear and tear with a hand-worked, triple cordover stitch that covers threadbare edges.

The triple cordover stitch, also known as the triple cordovan stitch, is one solution for camouflaging a garment’s worn edges. Commonly used as a leather lacing technique, the triple cordover can embellish the edges of new or old garments. It encloses the edge with an attractive, textured stitch that protects the edge from wear.

Kenneth shows how to start and end the triple cordover securely, with no visible knots.
