There are speciality machines for more complex work. One such essential machine is a serger [sp?]. Even as a hobbiest you will need one. They are not prohibitively expensive, ($400 and up) but you should...

I got picky about fit only after I already started buying decent quality shirts. I got my tailor to take in the sides and shorten/narrow the sleeves on 15 shirts for $22.00 each.

If I want a specific color that is never of clearance or a really exceptional fit, I just order from Jantzen at...
