Wow!! I have had a serger for at least 25 years and I have only used it to finish seams. I knew that people used their sergers to finish whole garments but I just never tried it. Well when I got the serger back this time from the repair man, it was so costly that I decided I had better make better use of the machine. Here is the first outfit I have made using only the serger. Except I used my machine to add the pocket to the shirt and to add the waistband to the pants. I did the neck edge 3 times. It was the hardest part. I was totally amazed how quickly the whole thing went together. and how smooth the seams were. No ripples. Since I am getting ready to start a walking program I have to make a bunch of spandex clothes to wear. (well I don't have to but you know how it is, any excuse to make something new to wear) I am so happy with my outfit. I have ordered a bunch of stretchey material from my favorite online fabric store. www.fashionfabrics.com and am waiting for it to arrive so I can sew my new outfits with the serger. How fun.
