This dress was tricky to photograph. It is cute and comfortable, though. I am pleased. I think I can even wear it to work (with a shirt underneath).
My favorite part of the new serger is that it does a snazzy coverstitch. Which made hemming and edging super easy. Many people say that it is better to buy two machines: one for serging and one for coverstitching. It does take a long while to reconfigure the machine when you want to do one stitch vs the other, I'll admit. But if I had told my husband that I needed to bring yet another machine in our little apartment, I think he would have fallen over dead on the spot. So my little two-in-one machine was really an investment in our marriage.
As I said before, this was a test dress for the pattern and machine. Since it turned out well, I ordered more knit fabric this weekend...
