Dear , let’s speak about sewing machines.
To begin with, let’s digress a little from the lingerie theme and just see what kind sewing machines can be.
If we talk about factories, then we can see different machines.What kind of machines will be in the factory depends on the type of clothing that the factory specializes in.
Every industrial sewing machine makes one specific stitch (for example, a straight stitch or a zigzag stitch) or a programmed function (for example, sewing on buttons, sewing a pocket, overcasting, etc.).
For fun, watch videos from the YouTube channel of the Juki brand. The videos show industrial machines.

Let’s more details
The sewing machine can be mechanical or computerized.
Depend of models, these two types of machines have the same stitches: straight stitches, zigzag, decorative stitches, the only difference is in the controling setting.
Below you see the types of stitches in my sewing machine Toyota OEKAKI 50B
*There are 50 of them, but I only use 10 types of stitches.
In a mechanical machine, to change the type of stitches or other settings, you need to scroll by hand a selection dial.
In acomputerized machine, you need to click buttons on a panel.
To be honest, I like mechanical adjustment more, it’s faster.
Overlock machine encloses the seam allowance or edge of the fabric, by special type stitches.
Now in many sewing machines there is an overlock-stitches, of course it differs from the seam that the overlock machine makes.
Example Brother 3034D
*I don’t use overlock machine in our course about lingerie making.
Coverstitch machine allows you to create a wide range of cover stitches on all types and weights of fabric for both decorative and constructive applications.
I don’t remember the last time I used this machine, this machine is needed for create clothes in a sporty style, because such stitches are an attribute of a sporty style. If you work in an elegant style you don’t need this type of machine.
Example Brother 2340CV
*I don’t use this machine in our course about lingerie making.
