Ever since I got a serger for myself, I've already made a couple of items using my favorite machine.
For instance, I sewed up this summer lounge pants for my older daughter recently. The fabric is seer sucker from Japan, which was on sale for less than $2/yard. Oh, how much I love bargains... especially if it's for the fabrics ;)
The pants pattern is from this Japanese sewing book.
Title: "Handmade Summer Clothing for Girls 120 cm - 140cm in Height"
ISBN: 978-4-8347-3031-9 (4-8347-3031-X)
The book has many cute patterns of shorts, pants, blouses, and dresses for young "tweens".
I also whipped up a chiffon scarf with serger recently.
This was a super quick sewing project, in which I simply cut out fabric with a pair of scissors and serged all four edges using the rolled hem function.
It was so quick and easy that I made two scarves at once.
I decided to send one to my mom-in-law in Japan.
The best part about sewing with sergers/overlockers is that it makes normally hard-to-sew fabrics such as this chiffon, knit fabrics, spandex, etc... so easy to tackle without any special techniques. And I can't wait to sew more garments using my serger!
Happy serging and happy sewing!! Hope you have a relaxing weekend ;)
