This is beautiful...a great choice for you in pattern and color...I am considering making it...I have many years sewing experience, but only recently bought a serger and a separate coverstitch...now I wonder why I waited and was so resistant...I finished hems on knits using a decorative stitch which stretched...I tested ones I liked from the many on my Viking with my knit fabric to see how much stretch they provided...now I have the coverstitch option too...it's very nice but not as distinctive as the decorative stitches are...

Thanks, Cleverclogs. Here I used a twin needle but didn't trim next to zig zag as it was already very close. Thank you everyone for your kind comments. BTW I see replies to comments starting 'in reply to ...' But I can't see how to do that. I looked up FAQs but didn't find an answer. Can you help? Thanks.

Congratulations- it looks terrific. Re hems- it is up to your preferences! If the fabric ravels a lot I use a traditional hem (fold fabric over twice.) If it is a knit, I just fold once, and use a twin needle. I then trim the hem as close as possible to the bobbin thread zig zagging, so it will more or less conceal the edge. If I think I need more weight, I overlock the edge then either straight stitch or twin needle. Just experiment on scraps and see what looks and feels best to you.

Congratulations on first garment! It looks great. I don't know much about overlocking and coverstitching, but the top looks very nice! Well done!
