It was just like an episode from one of those reality television shows. My daughter is a dancer who completes in competitions several times a year. The cost is completely out of control and the other moms and I were talking about ways to make dance more affordable.
The cost of costumes came up as one of the main contributors to the outrageous costs. It was decided that one of us should learn to make the costumes ourselves. For some unknown reason, I decided that someone should be me.
Armed with my sewing machine reviews I hit the stores looking for the right machine. After purchasing it for a few hundred dollars, I hit the fabric store and found exactly what I was looking for.
After a great deal of blood, sweat and tears the costumes were born. Unfortunately, they looked like they had been made by someone who had never sewn before and was trying to save money on costumes! They were a complete disaster!
What the reviews of the best sewing machines do not tell you is that you have to have at least some creative talent to make their machines do your magic! You cannot expect the machine to do wonders for you, it is only as good as you can make it.
