A slip stitch is a method of sewing where only two or three threads are caught up by the needle, allowing maximum flex and recovery. Slip stitches are used on the backs of high-end neckties to foster elasticity and maintain the tie’s shape. Because slip stitches are designed to be invisible from the right side of a garment, they are also used on hand-stitched hems.
