Oh and Stacie... Jalie has a great technique for people who do not own a serger. Zig-zag your seams and then sew a straight stich just under your zig-zag stitch. Doing that will create a much stronger seam. Kwik sew only reccomends a zig-zag stitch and sometimes you could see the stitching after the garment was worn. After I started using Jalie's technique for standard machines, I rarely saw another seam. :) I hope this post made sense!

Thanks! Stacie... making them with a standard machine is easy. I've only had my serger for 2 months. I did borrow a serger for a bit last year, but I did not use it a lot. Since purchasing my own machine, I have been making a lot of skating clothes. I think it is easier to make the dresses with a serger, but making them with a standard machine is absolutely doable and not hard. :)

WOW!!! Your outfits are amazing! How hard are they to make using the regular machine? Any tips?
