The pattern is very basic, so I knew it would be perfect for letting me concentrate on my new skill building. What I wanted to learn how to do was a flatlock seam on my serger.
I sewed up view D for this project.
Now, on to my flatlocking experiment. Flatlocking is a technique that you do with three threads in your serger where you sew your seams together but then pull the fabric apart so the edges of the fabric actually butt up against each other joined by the visible threads. The technique is popular for work out clothing so that the seams don't chafe and for thicker fabrics that would have a bulky seam allowance if sewn the normal way.
