Sewing with Cotton/Lycra Twill
I’m making shorts with a cotton/lycra twill fabric. This is the first time I’m sewing with a lycra blend. When topstitching along the crosswise grain, the fabric has quite a bit of stretch. I’ve noticed when topstitching pockets, the shape of the pockets are a little distorted.
The fabric is 97% cotton/3% lycra. I’ve stitched a facing (iron-on interfacing/fashion fabric) to the top of the pocket. The facing is stable. The actual pocket stretches as I top stitch. Do I fuse a strip of interfacing along where I want to topstitch?
