I’m using crepe de chine and i underlined it with a very light weight cotton (which i thought would give a little stability and structure). I’m getting ugly puckers in my seams :( Using an 80/11 needle, switched to cotton thread, and have my tension on the loose (but not loose) side. I’m also using both hands to feed the fabric through giving it a slight tautness.
