I have been wanting to tackle some projects with knits with my sewing machine (an old singer from the early 70’s). It does not have any accessories, just a regular presser foot. It is a zig zag machine so it could probably accommodate a twin needle, but lacks a second spool holder, therefore I am not sure I could make that work.
I have tackled a sundress with this machine, using a knit fabric, as well as a couple of garments with cotton/spandex fabric (therefore a little bit of stretch). I find that the results are not ideal because the seams are slightly pulled out of shape. I am guessing that I need a walking foot. If so, can I just get a generic one, or does it have to be specific for the machine? Do I need any other accessories? Without a holder for a second spool of thread, how would I get a twin needle to work, or is that out of the question???
Any insight is greatly appreciated Thanks
