Lycra. Most people are affraid of using lycra but it is not as difficult as it seems. If you have an overlocker, the most important thing is to get your tension right. I choose to use 3 cottons and no floss. Use one needle (closest to the blade) and two loopers. You must practice on scraps first and adjust your needle tension .If you stretch the material and the cotton breaks, you must loosen the tension until it does not snap any more.
Very useful information. Thank you for sharing it. Thanks
