is it called jersey or is that something else entirely? do I use a straight or zigzag stitch? do i need anything special, like a particular thread. needle, or foot? how do i know what tension to use and if it's too high/low?
I'm sorry about all the questions but I'm totally clueless and I need to sew like mad.
I used to work in promotions at a local venue and i have probably 30 too big tees from all the shows there (atreyu, calico system, punchline, emery, hellogoodbye, hopesfall, etc... i don't necessarily like all those bands but they had cute merch, haha) that are in desperate need of reconstruction. Also, all my favorite tees need fake "layered" bottoms bc they all show my belly and now that i've had a baby and am covered with stretch marks, I have the good sense to know that it's not cute anymore
I don't need patterns but rather just instructions/tips/tricks... I know there's gotta be something different with stretchy material, i just want to avoid ruining my neat shirts in the process of figuring it out.
thanks in advance!
