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'm searching for the light in the darkness and that light is truth. Shine the light on me and let me breathe again....-M.C.

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
