An addition... to the team

Yes! After much thoughts and consideration, I have finally purchased an overlocker. Much thoughts and considerations went into whether it is necessary for the extra investment on an already tight budget. Then again, it meant better serged edges in everything I sew... so, after much calculations, I have decided to invest in a second hand one.

Why an overlocker? See for yourself!
On the left was how I lock the edges to prevent fraying with my trusty old sewing machine. On the right is how it is done with the overlocker (aka serger). Which do you think looks better?

of course the serger one looks better... my family used to have a few sewing machines and sergers as we were in textile industry but too bad my mum sold them off already... *sigh*

the one on the right. My mom used to sew all our clothes and pyjamas and we used to take pride wearing them because they were all sooooo much prettier than what my friends' mummies could buy outsides. Of course now you could get really good stuffs on the aisles, but i still miss the old fashioned cotton pyjamas as compared to the tee shirt materials
