When I was young and foolish, I thought I could sew some clothes, too. I sewed a zipper in a dress back. Backwards. Twice. I made a two-piece bathing suit--I thought I could actually get one that would fit top AND bottom. The top was ok--kind of like a halter. The bottoms, however, had a crotch that was an inch wide. That machine sat in the basement for years except for the occasionally poorly made Halloween costume. :rollseyes:
I bought a new one. For steeks. Only. Period.
