So I have been very kindly lent a serger (yipee!) for as long as I use it (yipeee!).
we have been working well together & are very happy. But now I have cut all my pattern pieces out for the vogue 8280 dress and came to a conundrum…
Do I just serge all the edges together and be done with it? OR
Do I serge the edge of the pieces to neaten & sew the seams on my regular machine?
Does it even matter?
Will this bring on an existential crisis?
I have a feeling this is purely preferential matter – as to how I like my seams to lie on the inside of the finished garment.
Please feel free to sway to either camp on this matter… but soon, as I want to get this dress done soon! :)
