    Beautiful dress, looks great on you. Did you use a serger? I have this pattern but I have not worked with jersery fabric yet and I don’t know who to use a serger.

      Hi wildflower. Thanks. I did use a serger. But the majority of the construction is done on the sewing machine – like all the darts and tucks and applying the facings etc. you could definitely make this on a sewing machine. I would recommend using your stretch stitch if you have one and a universal or ballpoint needle.
