Because I don't want to pay $40 for a maxi skirt. That doesn't have an elastic waist.

Look how cute these babies are! I'd wear the shit out of them, except the fitted waist ones will not fit my waist. And I don't want to pay that much for measures of cloth. I can hand sew pretty well but nothing beats the seams of a machine. I'm looking at used ones on Craigslist but I'm so beginner at this that I'm not sure where to start. I haven't actually used a sewing machine before, but I'm a quick learner. I think I'll only require some basic functionalitie, but I'm not sure what that might mean. If it doesn't do a zigzag stitch now, will I be kicking myself later? How important are button-related tools? Teach this young grasshopper. I'm hoping to spend ideally less than $100 but realistically around $150. I'm not too good to shop at Wal-Mart or Canadian Tire.

In the meantime, look at these things I want but could probably make. 1, 2, 3, 4.
