I was planning on posting a tutorial for changing your serger knives, but I got caught up working on a pattern and lost track of time so I figured I would share a few pics with you.
I’ve been working on upgrading the Olive Dress from a simple (kind of boring) peasant dress pattern to something a bit more exciting. I have re-drafted the neckline to make it more square, and I’ve added a few more options. So far I only have pictures of a couple of the simpler ones.
Here’s the plain dress which is the most beginner friendly. I think it works well as PJs. My girls do too as they’ve each gotten a few as I worked on the neckline.
Here’s the rework of the original Olive Dress. It’s still cut slimmer and has inseam pockets. I’m not sure I love the long sleeves. I’m thinking maybe I should add some gathering of some sort to the upper arm. What do you think?
I added a pleat detail to the trim and the sash.
And here is a knit top with a waistband and a lettuce edge hem on the sleeves.
The fabric was super thin and stretchy so I had to mess with the settings on my serger a bunch, but I think they came out nice. 🙂
I still have at least two more dress versions to include before it will be ready. I’ll be so excited when I finally have the whole thing ready to show you!
