Wanted to get an overlock machine to give professional finish to seams. I went to the dealer and saw 'Rita' brand as he said he did not have singer meritt in stock. The overlock has 3 threads and is fine and has a manual too, but my problem was that i want the overlock to work on knit fabrics (planning to launch women's clothing line online soon...) as if it sews a seam, however the overlock i realized at the end is just to give professional edges to seams and not sew seams itself.
So how to they get professional seam finish and safe edges in readymade garments, then i realized may be they do it with sergers, unfortunately there are no sergers available in chennai, off the self, the dealer said he can import it for me, if can tell him the model.
I need you expert seamstresses, self-made entrepreneurs, sewing experts out there to help me out. Please.
What do i do, will getting a serger solve my problem of stitch a seam along with covered edges, or do i need an overlock as well as serger.
I am in quite a fix. Please please please help me out with your ideas and suggestions
