I just read Kenneth’s excellent article on Princess seams – where was he on my last few projects when I needed this advice…??
On my current project however, I’m working with a very slippery moderate-stretch knit (“Jet Set”) that doesn’t hold a press. The project calls for Princess seams, and because the dress will fit close to the body, I decided to use my serger to get rid of as much bulk in the seam allowance as possible. Since you can’t clip/notch the curves using this process are there other “best practices” to use for Princess seams when serging with knits? Even though I pin-basted diligently, my fabric pieces slid all over the place and the finished seams pucker. I fully recognize that the fabric I chose may be much of the issue – but any advice would be appreciated.
