Serged has a rougher edge with the stitching visible and forms a frill type effect around the leg, T and T is a hidden smoother finish between the two edges front and back but is typically thicker as a result but may be better for sensitive skins x

Serged on the left, t&t on the right. Serged nappies tend to be frillier aroun the legs.

I prefer serged as I find it fits on the legs a lot better, but my LO has skinny thighs and we find most t&t far too gappy on the thighs

I think these show it better as the difference is more obvious on side snapping nappies
