Upscale Jacket, Joan Friedrich, September 4th, 2023

September 4 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


What are you going to do with everything you learned in Serger Savvy I?  Just take a look at these jackets!

The use of the wave stitch finishes the jacket expertly.


Aren’t they great? Take a black sweat shirt and add a little pizzaz using what you learned and Serger Savvy I, like magic you have a very stylish jacket.
All of the techniques used making these three different jackets you learn in Serger Savvy I. As you can see, using the wave stitch you finish your jacket perfectly or you can use your contrasting fabric to hem your jacket. Viola no hand work required.
Once you make one then you can think in terms of gifts (just too easy) or expanding your football wardrobe.
If you are experienced using your serger, you can join our class as well.
Our classes are open to all makes of sergers.  Please remember Miss D’s sells Viking and Baby Lock machines and will be able to provide feet and supplies for those machines.  If you have another brand, bring all of your feet and material received with your machine.  If your serger does not have the  chain lock stitch, we will have machines available capable of this stitch you can use.

What to bring to class:

  • 2 spools of black serger thread
  • Fray Block seam sealant
  • Extra Serger needles ELx705CF 80/12 and 90/14
  • Wonder clips
  • Scissors

  • All serger accessories that came with the machine including the cover stitch table, white screws, accessory pouches (2) and all of the contents, telescopic thread guide and antenna, back spool stand and power cord.
