Would strongly recommend using migrations, rather than changing the
schema manually. I presume that you are using the built-in support for
migrations with Django 1.7. You do not explain details of the issues
that you faced with using migrations, so it is difficult to comment
further, but manual schema changes are more prone to errors.

Have not yet had occasion to use Django 1.7's migrations, but South
has been part of our Django setup for quite some time, and we have not
faced significant issues with it besides glitches when support for a
custom user was added to Django.
