Shirred Sundress

This month’s project is a simple child’s sundress using three useful techniques on your serger. During club we will learn how to create the various stitch techniques on the serger. Techniques include a rolled hem edge finish, turning tubes using an overlock chain and creating shirring using elastic thread in the cover looper. Don’t worry if your serger doesn’t offer a chain stitch; alternate instructions will be provided to accomplish this part of the project on your sewing machine.
