Sewing Machine Overcasting Foot

Availability: In stock

Overcasting Foot Snap On type and will fit many other Brands of Machines




Uses for and Overcasting Foot are numerous.

  1. This foot helps regulate the thread tension allowing the stitch to lie flatter. 
  2. Use with medium weight fabrics. 
  3. This foot is equipped with a pin which acts in a similar manner as the stitch finger on a overlocker. When the pin is placed along the edge of the fabric, it reinforces the edge as the stitch forms, preventing tunneling of the fabric. 
  4. The right side of the sole is cut away so the stitched edge of the fabric can move smoothly under the foot without any unnecessary pulling or stretching. 
  5. Another application for this foot is sewing a narrow satin stitch. The satin stitch can be formed over the pin for a raised satin effect such as in charted needle work. 
  6. Using the pin in the foot rather than knitting needles simplifies the process, especially for beginners.

The other option is to have a look at the diagram showing the different types of sewing machine foot shanks and the heights. We have also included a photo of the different foot shanks that this foot will fit.


The First thing you need to do is have a look at the photo of the Foot Shanks numbered 1 to 4, if your machine has any of these Brackets then this foot will fit your sewing machine. When ordering a new foot for your Sewing Machine the first thing you need to establish is what type of foot do you need? There are basically four types, Slant Shank (mainly old Singer Sewing Machines), High Shank, Low Shank and Snap On/Clip On. Please see Diagram below showing feet types (Except Bernina, some Pfaff and Some Husqvarna, which have their own unique attachment and therefore need a foot shank adaptor).

Does your machine's foot screw on or Snap-on/Clip-On?  

If it screws on it is important to know whether your machine is a low shank, high shank, or slant shank sewing machine. If you are not certain, you can measure using the simple instructions below:

To Measure:
Please make sure that the presser foot it lowered before measuring, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to the centre of the screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar.

  • Singer slant is for slant needle machine only.
  • A high shank machine measures approximately 1 1/4" (32mm) from the screw (small red dot on the above diagram) to the bottom of the foot.
  • A low shank machine measures approximately 3/4" (18mm) from the screw (small red dot on the above diagram) to the bottom of the foot.


  1. The other measurement you can use is the width of the foot shank where the foot Snaps-On.
  2. Pfaff feet are mostly 8mm
  3. Austin, Brother, Singer, Janome, Toyota, Baby lock, Silver, Necchi, ER Classic and many more are mostly 6mm
  4. Husqvarna are 5.5mm
  5. Singer Narrow Slant Shank and Narrow Short Shank are 1.5mm
  6. Most machines made since 1980 use Snap-on feet.
  7. All Bernina Sewing Machines need a "Low Shank Adaptor" which will then allow you to use the standard Snap-On style feet. Please look at our Ebay Shop for the Adaptors
  8. Singer Slant IS FOR SINGER SLANT MACHINES only. (All other Singers have Snap-on or screw on feet.)
  9. All Featherweights use low shank feet. They are centre needle position machines.
  10. For super high-bar lever-style Kenmore, use a High-bar adaptor.
  11. If you are still confused and not sure if this foot will fit your sewing machine, please send us a message and we will answer you asap.
