Anonymous asked: Hello! I just got an overlock (I don't know if that's the good english word since its not my first language??) for my birthday and I'm so /happy/ about it, but I don't quite know what to use it for! As in- I know that it's better to use the sewing machine for some things, and the overlock for some, but I don't really know what exactly? I have a friend who has an overlock and uses it for everything but I'm not quite sure that's a good thing...

vintage-aerith:

Oh, this is a really good question! Your overlock machine is more commonly known as a “serger”. And yes, it is necessary to have BOTH a serger AND a regular sewing machine, you cannot only own a serger.

The reason for this, is that a serger cuts off fabric while it sews. As you put your layers of fabric through the machine, a blade cuts off the fabric and then completely encloses the edge in the serge stitch.

See that strip of fabric falling off the edge, on the right? The fabric coming out the other side of this pic will look like so:

It is possible to retract the blade so that the machine doesn’t cut off the excess, but I can’t honestly think of a scenario where you’d want that. If someone has done it, please comment on this post!

The other reason you need both a serger and a regular machine is that the serger cannot handle sharp curves/turns well. Because of the two-needle/four-thread setup and the fact a blade is cutting off fabric, you can’t lift the presser foot, pivot, and continue sewing—it really doesn’t turn out well and sometimes you end up entirely missing sections of fabric and having an incomplete seam.

In order to accomplish sharp turns, mitered corners, points, etc, you still need access to a real machine, with either a regular or walking foot for freeform topstitching. For instance, I often sew God Tier Jade hoods, and I would never be able to negotiate the small curved end of the button flap with a serger—it would not be able to turn that tight of a corner.

Also, probably the most useful aspect of keeping your regular sewing machine, you need to be able to topstitch/create hems on things! You obviously don’t want fabric being cut off when you’re creating a hem, though you can certainly serge the whole end of a garment before folding it up and hemming it so that it’s extra cleanly-constructed. (also, for things like sewing very strong stitches in the end of an elastic loop for waistbands, etc)

You can use the serger for pretty much everything else, though! Now that you have a way to do clean seams, use it for all your internal seams and never have to trim or pink seam allowances again. If you’re unsure about fit while putting a garment together the first time, though, you may want to do a baste stitch to check, as a serger will be the point of no return and you can’t let the fabric back out if it’s too small.

I hope this helps!! :D
