I'd just like to share my first serged garment!  It's a shirt I made from a large man's polo shirt (argyle=love) and some soft grey knit fabric I had in my stash.
Before:
shapeless, huge, man's shirt (really soft, though!)


After:
I can't wait to start some more serger projects.  It makes it so quick and easy to have nice, finished seams.
What do you think?

Update: I added a full step by step tutorial to show I made a shirt similar to this one and posted it on my blog for anyone interested!  http://www.laupre.com/blog/?p=159
and a quickie tut for the yoke here on craftster http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281534

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!

Awesome recon! That is a really great argyle print too. I love the colors. I haven't gotten to play with a serger yet.

I think it looks super cute on you. You did great. I love argyle as well.
I also think I wish I could afford a serger.

Wow you did a great job I love the new look! Did you use a pattern or is it your own design? I've been making some tops for my grand daughter who just got an office job,this would be great since I go to the thrift store every week looking for cheap clothes to recon.

Thanks, everyone for all the great comments!  I didn't use a pattern for this, it was just guess, cut, and sew, but I would be happy to make up a little how-to to show my process if you'd like.
I'll try to have something together tomorrow!

You really know how to fit your body, looks girly and great. Pleats on the side are awesome.
