Meet author, designer and sewing expert Linda Lee and begin by unraveling the differences among overlock, flatlock, chain and cover stitches, and the machines that make them. Linda helps you choose your machine(s), then shares tips on basic serger stitching.
Find out how to use overlock stitches on fashion fabrics, both knit and woven. Linda explains how to get the modern look of exposed seams, decorative edgings and hems.
Rolled hems, French seams, and making and inserting piping may sound like high-fashion treatments you'd only achieve on a sewing machine, but you can do them all with your serger! Linda shows you how.
Now, get ready for flatlocking as Linda goes over the guidelines for loosening tension successfully with flatlock stitches. See how to use them for overlapped seams, faggotting and decorative techniques such as ribbon-weaving through a ladder stitch.
Find out how to work with fashion fabrics using a coverstitch machine, or the coverstitch feature on your combo machine. You'll create seams and hems that go beyond the basics, making the most of both chain and cover stitches.
Wrap up class by learning to coverstitch for ready-to-wear neck bindings. Linda introduces her favorite method for two modern raw-edged neck bindings. The possibilities for fashion details are endless!
