in the meantime, i decided to get some serger practice by sewing a new cardigan entirely on the serger. i've had this book for years but haven't really looked at it much because it looks so dated. seriously though--it has some great technique info and i plan to use it a lot in the future.

so i definitely need more practice. i used the differential feed to gather the skirt to the bodice but it wasn't super easy. i also did a rolled hem on all the exposed edges.
i'm happy with how the cardigan turned out but it's a challenging style to wear. i've found that if i'm not careful it veers into matronly territory. i do love the drape and how it swishes when you walk. i think i'll get a lot of wear out of this in the fall because the silk is quite warm. i still have enough fabric left to make another top as well.
i would love another cardigan like this in black. i'm nothing if not predictable.
