I'm curious what kind of stitch they use on commercially sewn clothing, Because none of my machines seem to have that stitch.

Im talking about the one that kinda like wraps around the two edges to make a smooth seam, You guys prob know what i mean. Its so common, you can see it on any t-shirt holding the sleeve on.

Please help/

Thanks!

that's done with a serger... an overcast stitch would be the closet on a regular sewing machine...

The stitch is called a coverstitch and the only way to get that exact stitch is on a coverstitch machine. But as StarlaAdora mentioned the overcast stitch would be the closet for home machines.

I have a babylock evolve serger and it does a coverstitch and I love it.  I'm guessing there are other babylock machines and maybe other serger brands that have that stitch.  It sure does make clothing look nicer!
