Tips for working with stretchable fabrics
The optimal result from working with stretchy fabrics will be achieved by using an overlock-machine. Seams will become very elastic and more durable, and will not break when wearing the finished clothes. If you are not going to use an over-lock machine, stitch the seams using an elastic special stitch or a narrowly adjusted zigzag stitch. Please take care that the thread tension is not set too high. For delicate mesh fabrics it is necessary to use a Jersey needle for stitching with your sewing machine.
