Skipping stitches can be caused by a bent or dull neeedle or a needle that is not suited for the fabric you are sewing on.

SOURCE: Shirring fabric?
When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

Probably your looper timing is off. This is common, and just a necessary evil of sergers. Their tolerances are tight.
The operation of creating a serger stitch is a succession of thread grabing and delivering. One looper grabs a thread and delivers it to the needle and so on.
To check this, turn your handwheel slowly and check to see that the upper looper is meeting the lower looper by passing very close to the indented part at the back of the lower looper (indented part is called the scarf, this is where the looper threads form a lock) If not, it's the looper timing. If they seem to meet properly then check your needle. Is your needle up into the needle clamp all the way? Try a new needle. Even a slight bend to the needle will not allow the loopers to meet and grab or deliver thread. You might check the tensions. Thread has to have some resistance in order for the loopers to do their job,
If your looper timing is off, find a sewing repair person to retime the serger. Don't try it yourself or put this repair off. If the loopers go further out of timing, they might hit something and replacement can be costly.

It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

Hi, general rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top.. When threading your machine, stop just before you thread your needle, put the presser foot down. Try pulling the thread. If it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. If it pulls hard, you got it right.

try to rethread the machine all the way back to the spool of thread and check the top and bottom tensions on scrap of same fabric
