I got a overlock on Saturday!  Hooray!  I was practicing doing rolled hems and this is what I came up with.  It kind of reminds me of one of those 60's mod dresses, though I wasn't going for that.

Front of the dress.  I used a little elastic to gather the sleeves.

Back of the dress.  I did a gathered ruffle with a rolled hem on both sides and attached it to the bottom of the dress.

Up close of front.  I also added a little bit of the gathered ruffle on the top.

Here is the action shot!

Please let me know what you think.  Thank you.

I Really love this pattern! So is an overlock/serger hard to get used to?

It's a dream.  It's hard the first time that you have to thread it.  If you are like me you will have to do it 30+ times, but don't let that scare you away, after you finally get it.  You've got it.  You shouldn't have the same problems again.  I've had to rethread mine since then and gotten it every time on the first go.

As far as getting used to it?  I've never touched one until Sat. night and I've made 3 dresses and a purse using it all on Sunday over about 6-7 hours.  I LOVE IT!  I thought it was easy to get used to.  And they really do several different things.  If your thinking about it, I think that they are definitely worth it.

P.S.  Thanks about the pattern, but I really just made it up, wish I had a pattern # to give to you.

wow, how cute is that?!

Congrats on the overlocker - I love mine too.  It makes quick work of seams (although I could do without the re-threading and accidental cuts dramas  Cheesy)
