Den Haag, Nether...
My old sewing machine had quite a bit of trouble with sewing jersey and basically anything stretchy. I bought a serger a week ago and made this dress to celebrate ;) Only the stitching on front and back pleat was done on the sewing machine, the rest is serger only (OK, I serged the hems and than stitched them in place by hand). It went together very easily and it’s a fun dress to wear. Originally I wanted to make the collar smaller and fold it double. The weight of the fabric might have made that a bit bulky though and I realized that I enjoy playing around with all that fabric. I can always chop a bit off later, if I grow tired of having that huge length around my neck.
