If you have decided to create your own unitards – regardless of whether you want to make them for you or your kids – you should know that there are certain tools and equipment needed to do so.
Just like many other sewing or fashion projects, making a unitard requires equipment. The first thing you will need is a straight stitch sewing machine – quite simple, neutral, forwards and backwards. This is a very basic sewing machine you can find at just about any specialized store.
Other things you will need include a baby lock surger (a four thread surger), a good pair of scissors to cut our your pattern, a little pair of nippers to clip the threads, and a thread stand. It would also be great if you had some pens and some marking chalk, but these are not really necessary.
You can find out more about the tools and equipment you need to make unitards in the great video below, which also explains what every piece of equipment is good for.
