Synopses & Reviews
An easy, get-started guide to working with your serger-to get quick, professional-looking results with all types of fabrics.
Easy SINGER Style Quick and Easy Sewing with Your Serger teaches readers all about the serger and presents 15 projects that help them develop the skills and techniques they need for both decorative and functional serging. The projects include fashion makeovers, fashion accessories, home accents, and specialty gift items. The projects make the most of the serger's special functions and capabilities.
As with the other books in the series, the early chapters present all the information the reader needs to get started-a discussion of all the features and components of a serger, the many styles available, and how to thread and stitch perfectly. Several projects showcase the varied techniques, including a vintage sweater makeover, ready-to-wear jacket trim, and window curtains. Readers gradually build skills as they apply what they learn.
This book features the step-by-step approach of the other books in the series, in keeping with SINGER's reputation for reliable, practical instruction.
