|Sewing Machine advice
||[Jul. 21st, 2010|01:32 pm]
sew much fabric!
I find it very difficult to buy clothes in shops (there's an eight inch difference between my waist/bust & waist/hips, which it makes it impossible to buy anything that's the right shape and size), so I'm looking into buying a sewing machine.
My nan is an experienced seamstress, but she lives quite far away and has used the same machine for years, so I thought I'd come to you good people for some advice! I'm currently looking at the E & R Classic KPN883 Sewing Machine because it's less than half price and I am planning, once I get a bit better, on using a lot of stretchy material for the upper half of my clothes, but I thought to ask y'all for advice on whether this is a good machine.
My nan will be able to help me in terms of learning how to use the machine, so I'm not too worried about the inital difficulty level (unless, of course, it's insanely hard).
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
