susanburc4321329 asked:
Can I do this using a "regular" sewing machine. I don't have a serger.
RecycledGrace answered:
It may depend on your sewing machine and what it can do, I think. The serger pretty much "seals" the edge of the seam, so that you don't have many loose ends or fraying or strings coming loose. The sewing machine probably doesn't have a stitch that does that (but maybe yours does?). So you can certainly cut and piece sweaters together, but the seams may not be as steamlined/exact/pretty. Hope that helps you out! Have fun! :)
