Serger Envy

My sister bought a new Baby Lock serger that does the wave stitch, and I am jealous. Not jealous enough to actually purchase one, because I have a wonderful Huskylock 936, but I’m just sayin…

I went with her to her serger club where everyone had one of these fantastic self threading wave machines. My envy dropped a little bit when most of the women in the class had trouble threading their machine, changing needles, etc. but I digress. My sister has never owned a serger before and has had this serger for less than a month, and here’s what she’s done.

Here’s the black and white ensemble. She made the skirt and refashioned a black tee from her closet by cutting off the hem, and adding a black and white wave stitch to the neckline, bottom hem and sleeves. The hem of each of the skirts she made are finished just using the wave stitch.

She made the skirt, then refashioned a blouse by cutting off a white camp shirt from her closet and adding wave stitching to the sleeves and the new shortened hem.
Here’s a combo made from Robert Kaufman’s Stockholm fabric she didn’t cut off the tee from her closet, but did add wave stitching at the sleeves…and made a tote too! Brava!

  1. How did I miss this post? These outfits are terrific! I esp like the one with the Robert Kaufman fabrics. Super job. Maybe she'll let you take hers for a test drive?
