Anyone familiar with sewing dance wear? I am having trouble keeping the fabric from “lettuce edging” when trying to do just a regular folded over hem with a zig zag stitch. The hems need to stretch. What is the best way to do this without the fabric getting all stretched out of shape?
Also, what is the best way to attach a ruffle to a hem that needs to stretch? My gathering foot uses a straight stich and the ruffle does not stretch. Should I just gather the ruffle with elastic cording then attatch it?
