    I’m new to sewing, and I’m trying some new patterns, while reading one of the instructions with the pattern I notice the word “Baste” , can someone explain this to me. what does it want me to do, with the fabric or the pattern?
    Thank you

    Basting is usually a temporary stitch for doing things like helping to gather fabric or by holding two pieces together. It can be done either by hand or by machine. You can sew this on your sewing machine by using a straight stitch and adjusting the stitch length to the longest it can go. And, usually. you don’t have to do any backstitching as this stitch can be removed when you finish your garment. You can see me doing an example of basting stitch here: https://www.professorpincushion.com/professorpincushion/basting-stitch/
