weekly photo challenge: on the move, or, serging ahead

Move, v. t.[OE. moven, OF. moveir, F. mouvoir, L. movere; cf. Gr. to change, exchange, go in or out, quit… ] 1. To cause to change place or posture in any manner; to set in motion…

Got out the old serger/interlocker/overlocker depending on what they call it in your part of the world.  And really went to town… so to speak.

Photos above should show what I’ve serged, and what got updated this Spring…

The Burda blouse from last year got it’s pleats sewn down, and itsy French knots embroidered at the bottoms, to match the ones on the back.  Then I sewed the entire neck facing down, by hand.  Patience, oh, patience!  Hand sewing isn’t my favourite task.  But it looks so much better!  Also serged that facing before turning under, come to think of it.   🙂

And… the brilliant yellow jacket, also from last year…  Yes.  The one that ravels if you think about it.  It finally got serged all the way round its seams, and is in the wash.  I used blue tailor’s chalk liberally, to mark wrong sides.  Come to think of it, hope it washes out.

And finally, thinking I had enough cherry cotton to do a trial of the Miss Bossy pattern, I laid out the fabric. Nope.  No way.  So I cut out, and then serged all the edges, of another blouse, with shorter sleeves. (Updated: Had to go searching for this ~ remember the December red w/white dots flannel? Cut out the bottom left view this time.)

We are moving on !
