Hi I'm new here and was attempting to make a toddler dress from a button down shirt but I'm having some problems. I pretty much know nothing about sewing or sewing machines. My thread keeps breaking, even though I went and bought some good quality thread. Plus the stiching looks all wonky when it does actually sew. Here's a pic - or rather a link to the pic since I haven't posted 10 times yet.
I know I need to adjust my tension and stitch length but I have and I don't see any difference. What settings would you start off with?
