Serging 101: Learn the Basics!

Serging 101: Learn the Basics!

SERGER 101: Learn the Basics!

Beginners guide to using your serger!

Join Angela Wolf  for a 90 minute virtual class and learn how to set up and use your serger.  Learn the parts on the serger, tips for rethreading,  differential feed,  reasons to adjust the stitch length and width, and so much more!

Learn how to set up and when to use:

  • 4-thread overlock
  • 3-thread overlock
  • 3-thread wide vs. narrow overlock
  • Gathering 

Learn tips for starting and ending stitches, how to serger corners, inside corners, and curves.  Trouble shoot tension issues and puckered fabric.  Learn how to adjust the differential feed to prevent stretching the fabric.  You will also learn serger basics including choosing and changing needles, using stretch threads,  disengaging the knife, and more.

Note: This class can be used with any serger, but you will need your serger manual on hand as each serger is a little different.   

 

This is a virtual class, live with Angela Wolf taking time for Q&A.  You do not have to be present to enjoy the class, as the class will remain open for 60 days after the live session is over to watch and re-watch as many times as you like!

Join us LIVE Friday, February 12, 2021 at NOON Eastern or catch the replay for up to 60 days after.

Would you like to WIN a spot in this class?

This is going to be such an informative class, especially for those that only use their serger for finishing seams or have never taken that fabulous machine out of the box! 

If you would like a chance to win this class, leave a comment below and let me know how much you use your serger (or it’s still in the box LOL!).  You can also leave a comment on Facebook and Instagram for extra chances to win.  I will draw 1 random winner Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 8:00pm eastern.  If you are the lucky winner and already signed up for class, I will refund your class fee.

Can’t wait to see you all in class for the live session or the replay.

Good Luck!

   For those that are brand new serger owners, check out the video below to learn how to thread the serger.  Of course every brand has it’s own method, but this might help.

The Delila Knit Top Pattern

The Delila Knit Top Pattern

The Delila Knit Top Pattern

This SUPER easy to sew knit top, the  Delila Knit Pattern launched a few years ago and is still a staple in my wardrobe.  I designed the Delila pattern based on a simple kimono style that tapers in the high hip area.  You know me, I can’t stop at a simple top, so I added not one, but NINE sleeve version!  

Recognize the blue short sleeve version with the slits I am wearing ~ I have worn it at EVERY event LOL!  This version is sewn out of an ITY knit, this fabric doesn’t wrinkle meaning it rolls out of my suitcase like this.  Even though the fabric is polyester, the slits in the sleeve allow airflow.  

     

    Here is a rundown of all the sleeve variations: 

    • Basic long sleeve
    • Basic 3/4 sleeve
    • Basic short sleeve
    • Long sleeve with cuffs
    • Long sleeves with outside trim and cuffs
    • Long sleeve with slits and cuffs
    • Three-quarter length sleeve
    • Three-quarter length sleeve with outside trim
    • Three-quarter length sleeve with slits

    The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The Bella Knit Top

    Another easy pattern to sew with a neckline twist!  I designed the Bella Knit Top sewing pattern to be sewn with knits for comfort and coordinate with A Touch of Couture Lace Embroidery Collection, Regardless if you add embroidery, this knit top is trendy and easy to sew!  slightly fitted in the bust area and looser in the waist and hip area with a flattering curved hemline.  Different than my other knit top patterns, this one has a v-neckline with facing instead of a ribbed collar band. 

    Although there are two sleeve options, I named the pattern after the bell-like sleeve which is fitted in the bicep area and then bells out in the wrist area, hemmed with an elastic casing. 

    I have sewn this version with rayon jersey knit for the body and mesh for the sleeve.  The short sleeve version offers a loose, flowing sleeve and a chiffon fabric is a great choice.  I am just finishing a few more Bella Knit Tops and will share photos next week with a few tutorials on sewing and embroidering this trendy top.

    The Bella Knit Top sewing pattern is available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.  

     

    NOTE:  The Bella Knit Top PDF version is included FREE with the The Touch of Couture Embroidery Collection.

    The Bella Knit Top #AW2009  

    • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W
    • Skill Level: Beginner / Intermediate 

    Supplies Needed:

    Fabric Ideas

    • Knit Fabric with at least 3% lycra / spandex:  Jersey Knit, Rayon Knit, Crepe Knit, Bamboo Knit, Pont Knit, Stretch Velvet
    • Additional Fabric Options for Long Sleeve:  Mesh, Tulle, Stretch Silk Chiffon,

    The Lacy Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The Lacy Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The Lacy Knit Top Sewing Pattern

    The design for the Lacy Knit Top was a result of our everlasting Covid lockdown! Whether lounging at home, working in the studio, or working out in our home gym ~ this top hit the mark.  Semi-fitted in the bust area, looser thru the hips, and a little longer in the center front and back.  My favorite versions of this top are sewn with a rayon knit and fashionable lace and the 2nd sewn with athleisure sportswear and mesh fabric.  (You might notice that I am wearing the Shirley Wrap as a dress)

    This comfortable, stylish knit top is easy to sew and perfect for beginners!  Here are the details:

    The Lacy Knit Top #AW2008

    A stylish top for athletic wear or dress it up with lace and velvet.

    • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W

    • Knit fabric with at least 3% stretch:  rayon knit, ITY knit, bamboo knit, jersey knit, athleisure wear
    • Contrast fabric could be the same fabric, just a different color or really mix it up with stretch lace or mesh fabric.

    Available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.
