BERNINA L 890 Garment Sew Along with Grainline Studio, Part 7: Comfy Dress

It’s the final day – Day 7 – of the L 890 Airy Top & Comfy Dress Garment Sew Along! Today we’ll be sewing up the last garment in this three-piece collection, the Comfy Dress. We’ll be using the 4-thread overlock and 2-thread coverstitch again and I want you to take note of how similar the construction is to the knit Airy Top, but how different the result is! This dress is also a perfect example of just how quickly a basic knit pattern can come together. Have 2 hours? That’s plenty!

I hope you all enjoyed this sew-along, picked up some new tips & tricks, and are now feeling more confident about using both your serger and garment construction. When you have the right tools, the sky really is the limit!

I had a wonderful time putting this sew-along together with my friends at BERNINA and truly enjoyed sewing along with you. You should be proud of not only your new garments, but also those new skills you picked up, and I hope this brings more confidence into your garment sewing and sewing practice in general. I hope this is just the beginning of a new garment sewing journey! Enjoy your brand new garments and I’ll see you around the internet!

  1. Thank you for this wonderful sew-along. Do you think it would be a good idea to sew in some stay tape or twill tape when serging the shoulder seams for stability, or is that often unnecessary? Thanks again! I look forward to watching more of your sew-alongs on your Grainline Studio website!

  2. Could you inform me as to the amount of stretch the fabric for the comfy dress should have? 2 way or 4 way stretch? Any fabric in particular you recommend? Thank you for the pattern, tutorial, and your assistance.
