Hello – I’m going to make this garment but using a quite heavy knit fabric which looks as though it will unravel easily. I’m thinking of finishing all the seams (as well as neck and arm openings) with bias tape – not sure what sort yet – do you think this approach is right?
Second question: I am not sure what to do with the hem. The pattern instructions say to leave the recommended mohair fabric unfinished with a zigzag just in from the edge but I don’t think that will work for my heavier fabric – it will simply look unfinished. Should I hem it, or use more bias tape?
Final question! I’ve never used a knit fabric before – any helpful hints before I start?
Edited: I don’t think after all it will unravel any more problematically than any average material but I still think I’ll bind all seams and maybe do a rolled hem (never done before…) for the hem. Advice still welcome if anyone has any.
Many thanks, and Happy New Year!
