Perfect except for one concern
Excellent for when you don’t have a serger.
If you know what you want, this might be it
What this foot IS NOT: a serging foot with built-in cutter (such as ones available from my manufacturer)
What this foot IS: a perfect piece to help you fake an overlock stitch with a basic sewing machine
If you have the kind of sewing machine that changes feet by lowering down the shank onto the foot and snapping in place, this will probably fit. I wasn’t absolutely sure it would fit my machine, but for $12 I was willing to take a gamble. Neither the picture or the instructions that came with this foot were very clear on how it actually worked, but there are 2 parts that help you use an overlock or even a basic zig-zag stitch (all I have) to finish raw edges. First, the little black piece that sticks out of the front helps you keep the fabric perfectly lined up with the needle. Second, a piece like a bar runs down the middle of the foot and the needle goes back and forth over this bar when stitching. The bar keeps the fabric from rolling/bunching up onto itself as you sew (which is what happened to me when I tried to edge using the zig-zag without this foot). This is a great foot and will keep me from having to buy a serger for awhile.
Just a note, if you need to straight-stitch something, either switch back to your regular foot or be sure to use the straight stitch that’s offset to one side. If you use the centered straight stitch, the aforementioned bar that runs down the middle will break your needle.
works great on my Brother LS2250PRW
good value, good product
