Help: slippery bathing suit material
I am new to the Threads discussion forum and I am so excited to have a virtual “world” of experts at my fingertips to ask for advice! Here goes my first question.
I am sewing a children’s bathing suit (it looks like a full body wet suit) on my new Bernina 1300 serger. The type of fabric I am using is VERY slippery and sewing 2 layers together without slippage is a real challenge. I tried using little pieces of “Wonder Tape” to hold the fabric in place at various points across the seam being sewn. This is working but is taking a LOT of time to place the tape. Does anyone have any other “quicker” ideas? Has anyone worked with “Solvy?”
BTW – I am pretty certain that changing the “differential” on my serger won’t help …. but am open to suggestions.
THanks in advance for your ideas.
