Sound good right.. i have 6 skirts to amend.. can bring one by one to ask her :P
    i think courts is a good idea too. the promoters are usually very helpful and very patient. try to get extended warranty too.

    if you calulate like that i got nothing to say, if your skirt $10 but need to dry clean only are you going to wear until it smell or send it to dry clean or throw away after you wear cos the cheapest dry cleaners do it for about $3 or more?

    its not the actual value per say but the perspective value of things.

    You can do shopping at Far East right?

    Don't bother with those toy sewing machines. They are of the single loop type ie. use only 1 spool of thread. So if the machine misses a loop or if you don't tie the ends properly at the end of the sewing, the whole thing will unravel. Very waste of time. Second hand machines are worth a look if you don't use it very often. Of course have to test run before you buy. see if got funny sounds when the machine runs. Must run very smoothly or else means previous owner did not maintain properly by oiling regularly.
