Gathering with your serger

It's fast, it's easy and it looks amazing.

Enclosing a Neckband on Your Knit Garment

Looking for unique ways to elevate your handmade garments?

I love the added detail that enclosing the neckband on your knit top gives.

It’s a fun way to add extra design elements, use a little scrap of precious fabric or highlight a special selvedge edge.

It is also a quick way for the wearer to easily tell which is the back. Using this technique also encourages the seam allowance to lie flat without topstitching the whole neckband.
