Can I substitute serger for double stitched seams?
I love knit fabric that’s usually called “double brushed poly knit spandex” at the Joann’s I go to. I am a very new sewer, having made 2 skirts, 2 tops, 2 totebags, 2 pillows and 2 zippered pouches so far since I began sewing at the end of Feb. I eagerly bought a serger 2 weeks ago since they are supposed to be so good for knits. I got an easy dress pattern and 3 yards of that lovely fabric, but all the instructions in the pattern say to “double stitch seams” and there’s no mention of being able to use a serger. Can I use it or is there a reason I can’t? It is McCall’s M7349, a pullover dress designed for stretch knits and I am making a size 10. Thank you to anyone that can advise me!
