I am trying to teach myself to sew.... what is a serge stitch an how do I set my brother sewing machine to do it?


A serger (overlocker) is not a sewing machine. If you look at the inside seams of a purchased t-shirt, you will usually find a serge stitch that was created using a serger (overlocker). A serger/overlocker usually uses 3 or 4 threads to create that stitch. It also trims the fabric at the same time it finishes the fabric edge. The serge stitch is a chain stitch that, if you pull a particular thread, the entire stitch will come undone.

Your sewing machine is not able to create that same stitch. Your sewing machine may have what is called an "overlock" stitch, but it will use only 2 threads (the top and bobbin) to create that stitch. You would have to consult your owner's manual to see if it can make an overlock stitch.

I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn


Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.

What are the types of sewing machine for t-shirt making?


almost any machine can be used to sew tee shirts. all you really need is a stretch stitch and overlock stitch which event the most basic machine has these days. try using an old shirt that you no longer wear and try different stitches, stitch lengths until you are satisfied with the results,

Does the Brother XL-5340 do an overlock stitch? If it does do I need to change the foot and to which foot? Thanks


There is an overedge stitch (page 38) that uses the regular presser foot.

If you do not have a manual, you can download (free) from the Brother site.

Sounds like it is either out of time or the adjuster spring needs to be replaced.
