Serged Knit Top

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I had an "OH NO" moment when the silky knit fabric slipped in the serger. The serger blade cut a couple inches of the fabric front and center. I feel pretty good about coming up with a little added detail in the front to cover up the cut in the fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern is really quite easy to put together. I did find the scoop neck to be lower than I thought it would be, so on my next top I'll adjust the pattern before cutting.

What you will need

  • A beautiful silky knit.

Q&A with Screaming Mimi

Surgery tech asked:
I love it. Where did you find the beautiful fabric?
Screaming Mimi answered:
I'm fortunate to have a little independent fabric store in my neighborhood called The Bolts End. They get some very cool stuff in there, and have the best selection of loose buttons I've ever seen.
