Recommend serger with cover stitch
I’ve been dying to copy some of my ready-to-wear items, but I’ve noticed that almost everything is finished with what’s called a cover stitch. My serger doesn’t do that, and I don’t know how to finish a seam in a similar way using a sewing machine and basic serger. I like the strength and stretch of the cover stitch, and I’m thinking about getting a new serger that has the cover stitch option. Does anyone have any opinions about the best machine to buy? Any regrets? Anybody have a way to create a nice top stitch that stretches a bit so I don’t have to buy one? I’m somewhere between a novice and an intermediate sewer, but I’m always eager to learn more.
Thanks in advance!
