Simplicity 8376 Serger Knit Top

Hello sewers and sergers!

Here is an easy, quick, nice-fitting pattern for your summer tops.
Simplicity 8376 gives many options for pattern hacking.

This one is View 1, the Base Pattern.
It is the perfect pattern for not only new-to-knit sewers,
but also for experienced sewers who might be new to using an overlocker.

You do not have to sew this on a serger/overlocker,
but the pattern and the overlocker make a perfect pair.

If you are in the local area, I'm teaching this as a Baby Lock Serger event
at Wimmers in Layton on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
My Silhouette Cameo teaching friend, Dana,
will be joining me to show you how to add a monogram to your top.

Price of admission includes
your fabric (the fabric has a beautiful drape - it is viscose and spandex),
vinyl monogram, lunch, and lots of fun.

We will discuss knit fabric choices,

I will give you tips for matching stripes,

we will attach a self-fabric neck band,

and we will stitch the entire top using Baby Lock sergers.

Okay, let's go sew some new summer tops.

Thanks for visiting.
