Learn how to use your serger for more than rolled edges and seams! Each quarter we will utilize a different technique and help you think of ways to do more with your serger.

January 2018  - "Winter Leggings"

Supplies:
*  Serger with 4 thread overlock (preferred coverlock for hemming but not required)

* pattern weights or pins
* 3/4" - 1" elastic x length of waist
Fabric: 1 1/2 yd  4-way stretch knit fabric with at least 50%
stretch horizontally and vertically with good recovery.  Look for
spandex or lycra in the content.


We now carry some stretch fabrics in the store. However,
if you do not find something you like, here are some other
places you might check out.
(Fabric can be found at Elfriede's in Boulder, Colorado Fabrics in
Denver or online at "So Sew English fabrics" or "Sly Fox Fabrics",
