Don't be afraid! Basic sewing machines are super easy to use. What kind do you have? It might be worth it to take it to a local sewing repair shop to give it a good tune-up. You can find most operators manuals, even for super old machines, on-line. Check and see if you can find it on-line and read through it, you'll see it's not that hard at all! They are easy and it would be worth the little time and money if you want to makes dresses to sell.
