My sewing machine does not like to sew batiste, nor my serger for that matter. Batiste is such a fine fabric that thread tension is a major issue when sewing it. I had to do a lot of test swatches to get each machine to behave to an acceptable degree. The button holes were almost a nightmare. I decided to use french seams for the major seams, which is what I usually do when using batiste or light weight fabrics. Because the fabric is so shear I’m not sure that I like the serged finished edges on the waist and hems. I think it might have turned out nicer if I had done a double bend back (baby hem).
