The little magenta knit cardigan has some ridiculousness to it. For starters, I constructed it with the red thread that was already on the serger. Because who has time to change thread? That would be the same person who took time to catch-stitch the neckline and hems by hand. That is how I watch television - with needle, thread and whatever needs sewing.
|And doesn't the magenta look nice with this knit from Korea? I am excited to sew that soon, too.|
Now is when I should mention that yes, I do have a coverhem machine and I could have used that. I would have wound several bobbins of matching magenta thread and that would have been fine. I guess I felt it would be awfully bulky for this fluid knit.
That leads me to the next chain of events. First of all, let's just get this out of the way, I bought a bunch of fabric when I picked up that magenta knit.
|The sewing mojo demanded to be fed.|
Jalie knit dresses last summer. I cut them a little fuller, though. Gosh - out of nowhere came all sorts of creative energy. All of the skirts are cut and the assembly line is in production. I still need to work out the bodice design and cut them.
Full disclosure: I am using black thread on the serger for all of these dresses. I don't think I will ever be a seamstress whose every garment looks just as good on the inside as it does on the outside. Frankly, my sewing mojo is in charge. I am just trying to keep up!
