When sewing in jersey, using an overlock machine is the most common method. It joins the pieces with an elastic seam, while overcasting and trimming the edges at the same time. It uses a whole lot of thread compared to hand-stitching, but, as often is the case, is much, much faster.

My overlock is a vintage industrial one, but still works like a charm! And have done so, for about 20 years or so.

Let’s put the machine to work!

Good morning! The Basic Black Turtleneck No. 4-2019 is now ready. What to you think? At least it’s very practical, stylish and can be used over, and over again for years to come. A favorite, as they say. 😇

Thinking about the three items I’ve made so far here in 2019… Wouldn’t a basic black jersey turtleneck be a nice addition to the lot? It could be worn under the dresses if it’s a bit chilly – or by itself maybe?

Let’s try to make one, and see.

First some pattern-making and then on with the rest of the making… Let’s get this done!
