Overlock stitch instead of serger - I had no idea! Did you know that most regular sewing machines have a special overlock stitch that mimics a serger's stitch? It's true! My Bernina has one, and so have the Pfaff and Brother machines I've sewn on. Most people without a serger use pinking or zigzagging to finish their edges, sometimes without even knowing they have an overlock stitch on their sewing machines.
Since the start of the new series of Sewing Bee, we can't get enough of sewing our own wardrobes! First stop for summer is always dresses, with sunshine on it's way, and what's better than dresses you've sewn yourself?
