The pattern is raglan t-shirt by ottobre using some blue owl jersey and some blue jersey for the sleeves. Every seam was basted as I was horrified by the possibility a needle could get between the knifes and I didn't dare to serge without needles nor basting. As everything came together pretty well it was worth the bit extra time. Neck and sleeves were finished with a purple knit (a bit thicker than jersey similar to that part of sweaters around the wrist - no clue how you call this type of fabric in English. Darn!) which makes for a nice interesting, more sophisticating look. Of course J was only concentrating on the owl sticker LOL
- Most important: As usual there is nothing to fear about. I am only cursing myself when I have to dump a project. Next time it will be done better.
- Basting helped a lot to focus on serging and keeping my seam allowance fairly regular.
- Tension was good, though it can be slightly improved and the seam looked good as well (no strange loops hanging everywhere)
- Crossings with several layers of fabric are the main problem for accurate sewing as it tends to slow down the fabric transport and to shift the fabric.
- Testing some different materials and techniques for neckline etc. (my sons are my best guinea pigs) to get a feeling what works and looks best in combination with a serger.
- The seam allowance does look better and it was way more fun and relaxing then before.
- Still not sure if my twin needle ever will be loved as there are some tension issues to resolve.
- Already love my serger: no fuddling, silent and nice seams.
- Why the heck didn't I had a server for making my sons bed linen?
Unfortunately, we still need some new pj's as this one has to be worn regularly.
