Difference Between Baby Overlock and Normal Overlock Stitches

'Baby Over Lock' is not a very common stitch name. I have heard this term few years ago when I was working in a garment export house. I used to recognize this stitch by its design. That time I did not think of comparing 'Baby Overlock' stitch with 'Normal Overlock'. 

Fortunately, one of my friends who is preparing to start garment manufacturing business, asked me this question. I hope you will also find this  article helpful. Keep reading and comment at the end.
