Machines for sewing swimwear (post #41077, reply #1 of 2)

You can sew swimwear with any machine that makes a zigzag stitch. A serger that creates a three- or four-thread overlock stitch is helpful for stretchy seams, but isn't essential, and even if you serge the seams, you'll need a regular sewing machine or a coverstitch machine to complete the topstitching.
