Lazy sewing - a guide

This is what happens when you have twelve white togas to sew for a school production with one days notice. You run out of energy to rethread your machine when the right needle breaks at 11pm at night.
Three thread overlocking for the lazy
So you sew with one needle on a default three thread overlocking style. I figured since they were being worn for 4 minutes once, they could do with a less stable thread. The overlocker is now proudly sporting new needles and black thread. I used to dread rethreading, but amazingly enough, found that if I followed the rethreading instructions exactly it worked fine. Its a very sturdy Huskylock bought second hand and rarely adjusted.
