I made this little robot dress for my daughter out of joanne's "snuggle flannel." I used my serger for just about everything with a 3 thread overlock stitch. The design was my own, so I had no pattern to go off of. This is only the second clothing item I've ever made, and I've never used a pattern, so I'm pretty clueless.
Anyway, the dress looked AMAZING for about 5 minutes. Them it seemed to disintegrate on her...
The flannel just unravelled and fell apart anywhere there was any tension. I know that when you are using fabrics that unravel you sometimes use a zigzag stitch to hold it together...but since I was serging all the seams, the serger cut away the excess fabric as it went.
So my question is: Is it me, or is it cheap fabric? Did I make a rookie mistake? Thanks for your help!
