Yellow Sundress: Part 1

You may or may not have been aware but April just-so-happens to be "National Serger Month". In honor of that I've been purposefully utilizing Sergers in all my refashions this month to showcase how easy they are to incorporate in "everyday sewing." :)

I found this Old Navy Sundress for .99 cents and loved everything about it... except the bottom ruffled tiers.


All I did was cut the tiers off right at the seam.


I finished this new raw edge using a Serger and set it up to do a rolled hem.


Because the material is stretchy it curls the hem a bit (something I actually, personally, like on certain garments).

A super simple Cami is born!

Happy Easter! (And Serger Month) ;)

OK so I snuck a peek and can't wait to see Part II. I think the Part II idea is perfect.
Re-fashioner take a guess what it is.
