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.
