Oh, I love all your shirts. You've been one busy gal! Your choice of colors is nice too.

Coverhem is the stitch that looks like a double needle on top and a zig-zag on the bottom...check the hems of some of your store bought t-shirts...it should be there! The Elnas do 3 coverhems. Look at elna.com for more info, or send me a private message!

Thanks Jen for the info! I was thinking about the Elna! But what is a coverhem? I don't know that technique. Thanks, Nickie

Pickle, I used a wide coverhem, but a double needle would work too. I used my Elna 945 serger for both the serging and coverhems. I love the machine...the Elnas are great! You can search the machine reviews here for both the Elna 744 (mechanical) and Elna 945 sergers (computerized). These are both my favorite sergers!

Hi. I love your finishing on these knit shirts. Did you use a double needle for topstitching? Also, did you use a serger? What serger would you recommend if you did use one? I just can't get those even edges with my machine. Thanks for any advice you can offer. Nickie

Congrats on getting all the tops done! Clever idea with the white rescue on the turquoise top.

Love this pattern, I've made sooooo many tops from this pattern. You are right about the flare at the hemline, I use this pattern to check sizing on other knit top patterns as it is such a good fit.
