Hi, I am currently working on a dress with very lightweight jersey. I have used paper under the fabric and between fabric & pressed foot while stitching seams, and this has worked well. However when I top stitched I didn’t see any need to use the paper as the fabric moved well through the machine. All looked good until I’d finished – now the seam has a slight “ruffle” to it and the pockets gap open. Should I have stabilized the fabric more? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
