My Anniversary Present: A Serger!

I have the best husband EVA'! He got me a "new" serger for our anniversary. He's a bargain hunter!

New-to-me serger!
I was really excited to use my new machine, so bear with me as I show you the simple hem job I did. My sister found this dress at Goodwill. The bodice fits me AMAZINGLY well, but it was obviously a little too long. No problem for my handy new serger!

Original length...
Cutting off some excess material.

Great seams!
