i’m new at sewing and have been using a twin needle to sew stretchy jersey/knit fabrics. everything is turning out great, plenty of ease, perfect fit BUT my stitches still show on the outside. Initially i was using a single needle and a zig zag stitch but that was showing so i figured it was the zig zag’s fault, now i’m using a twin needle and they’re STILL showing. the shirt is loose for me but when i pull it over my head/shoudlers, it stretches and i guess that’s why it’s pulling at the seams.
