A couple of weeks ago I bought an overlocker – just the cheapest Janome that John Lewis stocked – and went on an Overlocking for beginners workshop at The Make Lounge. I had been wanting an overlocker for some time, but horror stories kept putting me off. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Yes, they’re scary with their four threads, but the overlocker has transformed my sewing life.
Ok, I’ve only used it once so far, but along with my first sewing machine sewn blind hem, it means I won’t be looking back. This new dress is definitely my best yet.
I can’t wait to start using the overlocker on my African print girls’ dresses.
