What about special items eg christening gowns, fancy dresses.

Oops, my kids live in TU and F&F; is that a MN outrage?! slinks quietly off to corner again

I don't. I like the brand 'Wild things' I think it's called, who make to order.

I'm not sure what to advise about machines, I only have a basic one and you'll know far more than I.

I'm not the only one who doesn't like supermarket clothes though surely?

I wish you every success, but given that clothes are so cheap in supermarkets... I'd be dubious about your hourly rate!

I have recently learnt the basics of sewing and fancy doing something with my new skills to make some money. I'll need to learn more and buy a better sewing machine but I wondered if anyone could advise me on making clothes to sell?
What sort of machine should I be looking for?
Is it a ridiculous idea? i.e. will it be making me £2 per hour?!
