So, my excitement over the new overlocker has gone down(just a teensy weeny bit), and I am testing it. I’m currently working on another vogue 8232 dress, and I’m really happy with how professional it looks inside because of the overlocking. My regular machine has an overlocker foot, but the results are so much better with the overlocker. The speed for instance, is out of this world, and I was quite surprised when I went back on my sewing machine and noticed how slow it was in comparison to the overlocker.
I was quite lucky that the overlocker came already threaded, but when I started sewing, I noticed something was not quite right. Upon closer inspection I realised one of the threads was not there, so I had to rethread it. That took me a good part of 1 hour, and that was just 1 thread. In the end, it all made sense.I think threading the overlocker is not as scary as we all think. Doing it the first time might be daunting, but when you get the hang of it, it becomes easy.
So, if like me you were scared of using one, the best way to overcome this, is to buy one, and just go for it. It’s not as hardcore as we think.
Have a lovely week.
