Default Re: Sewing questions

Those hand held sewing things are awful. Don't waste your money.
I think turning up and hemming the shirts would depend on how much is being taken up. You don't want it too bulky.
You could cut across the middle somewhere and just do a simple seam, if you don't mind that look (or if you are doing 2 different colour shirts, switch halves to make it a feature)

As for the shorts, are they elastic waist? If so, cut open a hoke in the part the elastic goes and shorten the elastic. If it's a normal waist, I normally just put in a couple of darts (and undo them as they grow)
Janome and Brother are great sewing machines for beginners. And I'm not sure over there, but most places here offer a free first sewing lesson when you buy a machine.
