Metallic and Matte
I finally completed my third version of Vogue 9026. The fabric used was a double knit with metallic coating on one side and a matte finish on the other. I bought this from Mood Fabrics a couple of years ago.
I signed up for a Serger and Coverstitch contest on PR. I truly thought that I would have time to make two items to enter. At this time, it looks like just this one.
The fabric though fun and unique, serging it with my serger was rather difficult. The thickness with the metallic coating as well as that type fabric wears on the needles. I kept the fabric taut while serging holding the fabric in front as well as back of the serger foot.
Here are some photos of the top completed. Since the fit has been perfected, it was easy to serge this. You are allowed to use the sewing machine for topstitching, sewing down facings, as well as to baste the item before serging.
The side seam is forward of the actual side as you can see in the picture below. This also gives you a view of metallic and matte together.
