I would love to try sewing a crushproof slinky knit outfit, but after having to alter a jacket from that fabric for a friend, I’m not sure I’m up to sewing a complete outfit.
I don’t have a serger. My New Home Mem Craft 6000 has been more than adequate for about anything I’ve ever tried, but I couldn’t keep the stretchy knit from rippling while sewing it. I reduced the presser foot pressure, used a fine ballpoint needle, played around with both upper & bobbin tension, various stitches, and nothing helped. I finally re-set those jacket sleeves BY HAND. Must one handbaste? Or always use staytape? -HELP-
