If you're a beginning sewist, you probably don't yet own a serger. That's a very special sewing machine that trims, stitches, and overcasts the raw edges of your seams. Notice the seams of clothing you've bought in a store. The raw edges are encased in a fancy, zig-zag-like stitch called an overlock stitch. Your conventional sewing machine probably can't replicate this same action, so you'll have to try the next best thing: finishing them with either a pinked and straight stitch finish, topstitched finish, or zig-zagged edge finish.
Cool greys transition from summer to fall in a shirt dress, flowing maxi skirt, and new jackets.
