My new clothing brand – Elastic Wonder – is all about stretch and tight fit. Skin. Tight. Fit. For this type of garment a regular sewing machine just won’t do!
Do you have a big home dec project on your want-to-do list, but haven’t tackled it yet because it requires many yards of gathered ruffles? Join Connie as she demonstrates how simple it is to gather fabric on an overlocker using a gathering foot.
Guest blogger Palak, from Make It Handmade, has put together a list of links for projects featuring my favorite machine: My overlocker/serger!
Who said that sewing with knits is scary? This basic tank top can be your perfect introduction. Made in a flash using an overlocker/serger, it’s so easy you’ll want to make several! Useful for layering or as a stand-alone basic, this tank top will be your go-to garment come the dog days of summer.
I love my serger. I wouldn’t get nearly as much sewing done if it weren’t for this little workhorse. Honestly, for the last year or so my sewing machine has been an “accessory” for my serger, not the other way around! I’ve collected links to some of my favorite serger projects and tutorials. Serge on!
