In desperation to get pants to fit, I have decided to return to sewing. It has been years since I’ve sewn (I do a lot of knitting). But I’m concerned because I like really nice clothes, and I’m not sure I will be able to pull it off.
So I’ve got some questions: what kind of sewing machine should I look for (key functions)? Some machines look like the sewing equivilent to powertools–more is better in idea but not necessarily in execution!
What are key tools for getting the best fit? Any “I couldn’t do without” items or books?
Any seductive items I should avoid? In the knitting world that would be varigated yarn–just like bad lovers, so seductive but inevitably disappointing!
Thanks in advance,
