If you've been reading my ramblings for awhile, you will know that I have a real thing about matching the thread to the fabric of whatever garment I'm sewing. This is not just the thread used to stitch a garment together but this also applies to the serger thread used on the garment too.
When I'm colorblocking a garment, I use different threads for each section. If the lining is a different color, then I change the serger threads and the thread on my sewing machine. I know totally anal right?
I know that some sewists have talked about using gray thread in the serger since it blends so well with most colors that way they don't have to change the serger thread that often. But me, it only feels right if the threads match or coordinate. Here's a dress that I blogged about in 2009, where the thread was definitely changed for each portion of the construction. Alas it's no longer in my wardrobe...
So how about you? Do you change your serger and sewing threads to match every project? Or do you make do? This is the Question of the Day so talk back to me!
...as always more later!
