Saturday updates

I finished cutting out the lining fabric this morning.  I have the serger threaded; I like to finish the edges of my jacket seams even though I am going to line the jacket.  I serge finish the lining fabric most times.  A few times in recent months I have not.  The seams are well protected as they are up against the jacket seams, so there should not be additional raveling.

What do you do with lining fabric- serge edges, pink the edges with pinking shears, or do nothing or do something else?

I just got home from grocery shopping as well as window shopping.  I did purchase a couple of sweater knit tops at Belks.  They were having a sale and I have not been able to sew as much as I had hoped on tops.  I have some knit tops that need to go to Goodwill.  Many are in good shape; I am just tired of wearing them and a few are just to large now.

Drinking a Peppermint Mocha to boost my energy and will head to sewing room soon.

More sewing updates later.

  1. A peppermint mocha sounds like a great idea! Regarding lining, I have started to always serge finish all of the lining edges and then use the sewing machine to stitch the seams. I have had a few garment linings that became shredded at the seams if I just serged the seams only, so now I like to have a little buffer there.

    1. I have used the lining from Hades before and yes it was best to have serged it.

  2. I've started serging my seam allowances in jackets.

  3. I serge my lining because I use Bemberg lining most of the time and they fray so badly that's why I serge. I need a booster too.:)

    1. True about Bemberg lining, I have learned that this type lining does better with serged edges.
