I have used the Irish Threads pattern and have completely sewn the skirt, the lining and then put it together. So, all seams are inside. When looking at my daughter's siopa rince dress the pleat seams are serged together. This seems so much easier. So, what do you guys do? if I have a machine that overlocks, do I need a serger too? What serger do you all use?
-Do you know anyone who has a Threads Of Green dress that you can look at? The seams are put together like Siopa Rince, but then binding is made out of the lining fabric to cover the seams. I make mine the same way. Much more "finished" looking, and wears better.
-I have seen this, too. It is much prettier. So, do you sew the front, then the back and attach the skirt and then sew it together? Just curious. This would seemingly make the whole zipper thing easier.
-I think the way Terrie finishes them looks very
professional. I do not know a lot about sewing but I was surprised to see a Siopa Rinca dress serged with white thread on bright orange lining, I would have thought the fabric and thread color should match, especially considering the cost of these dresses. So I suggest serge and finish like Terrie suggests.
