English term or phrase: Draw up
Bonjour,

Comprenez-vous le sens de "draw up" dans la phrase suivante :

"Set the differential feed so the stitches draw up the opening slightly (refer to your owner’s manual)."

Il s'agit d'une procédure pour coudre une encolure simplement retournée et piquée (en opposition à une encolure bordée d'un liseré).

Merci d'avance pour votre aide

agree  Tony M: Presumably, as with a draw-string. That's the usual sort of sense of 'draw' in this kind of context.
