That is such a good looking top, Chimene! Hmm, I think I see more of these in your future...

chimene--I use a double-eyed needle to sip the 'tail' of serged thread ends back under the seam stitches. I like it better than using Fray-Check. You don't have to wiat for it to dry. This is available through Nancy's Notions (#DEN3 $2.49) I made this top last year and have gotten a LOT of use from it.

Wow - 2 hours! Great reward for 2 hours of work. Nice job, Chimene.

Thanks for the advice Ladykick. I will try it. The stitches won't unravel if you pull the tail through and not apply fray check?

chimene--I run the threads back about 1-2 inches under the seam stitches. I have been doing this for several years and have never had a problem.
