Hey Everyone,

i wanted to try a top in knit fabric.  The pattern said it was "easy".  I got it home and looked it up online and everywhere I went online it seemed like everyone used a serger to make it. 

I don't have a serger.  Do I need to take this pattern back?

No, you dont need a serger .
Just use a zig zag and adjust the width of the stitch .
It needs to be lesse than  normal

Take a test piece of  fabric and try  which stitch wich works for it.
Fold your fabric  and sew a  couple of cm ,  open it up and see if the  seam still is "closed "nicely

Using the zig zag stitch will keep it "stretchable"

Thank you for the response.  See, that is what I thought when I bought it but when I looked online, everyone who made it seemed to have made it on a serger.  It made me paranoid.   Huh
