After receiving my wonderful Babylock serger from my students, I decided the next garments I created would be made entirely on the serger. The striped rayon knit for the tee shirt and the rayon blend ponte for the slacks were both purchased at Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabrics in Berkeley.
I had fun cutting up the striped knit and then serging it back together again! So here they are... Jane
