armhole stretching on knits – binding
Hi. I am sewing a Kwik Sew tank top out of mesh fabric. The pattern is part of a swim suit pattern set. When I sewed the binding onto the armhole, it stretched all over the place. I did not stay stitch the armhole prior to attaching the binding (1/4 inch seam allowances on the Kwik Sew patterns make this difficult). Should I have added clear elastic swim elastic? Since the mesh is quite see through, the elastic would not be a problem but bias cut interfacing might look ugly. THANK YOU for any ideas you have for me. I’m just learning!
