Serged or turned and top stitched?

Postby vivien500 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 2:01 pm

Me again :yahoo:
Just wondering what the benefit of paying the extra for turned and top stitched is? Is it just that they look different or do they perform better when t&t?

I agree with Kirsty. I prefer the serged look.
We can get a better fit with serged too.
If we get a leak - its usually a T&T nappy

I prefer serged, they're slimmer at the edges against LOs legs.

That's interesting!

I never used to like serged as it kind of dug in to baby's legs when she was smaller but then she is very tiny but on smaller non-bulky nappies I find it can be a better fit between the legs. I still prefer the look of t&t though.

More personal preference then it seems? I've ordered them all Serged, might change and get one t&t and then I'll know which I prefer! I do have a preloved DnF which is turned and top stitched but Edison hasn't worn it yet!! Custom orders are kinda stressful eh?!
