Hey guys! I'm new here and i love, love love DIY cause i'm always broke. Well, i found a pattern, recipe, whatever, for a ruffled jean skirt, and i want to make it because the pattern is so cute. Problem is, i need to handsew the skirt because i have no idea how to handle a sewing machine, even though i own a working one. The fabric is blue jean, and is it safe to use a regular needle and thread or do i need something stronger? Anything would be appreciated! Grin

I'd have to say I'd recommend learning how to use the sewing machine, because I've tried to sew a jean skirt hand sewing, bad, bad, it ends up breaking the needle a million times and its just a big pain, im sure its possible with a stronger needle but expecially with a ruffle, itd be a lot easier on the sewing machine. Just pin the ruffles on and sew a straight line, and for the whole conversion of the top part i hand sewed that, with a regular needle not too bad
Sorry if that was long and confusing, but no one else commented so i figured my amateur response was better than nothing
