I have a light embroidery stabilizer that I use if I know I'm working with an "escapee" fabric.  It's the "can you sew this for me" ones where I have no warning that I grump about.  And now I keep a stack of strips of stabilizer in my work basket by the machine.

Anyone done this with an outdoorsy, technical type fabric?  I'm a year-round cyclist, and I need leg warmers in the winter - I buy them from Patagonia or whatever, but they're really expensive.  I'd love to make my own and wear them.  Any good sources?

I've never sewn with the stuff before, so I'm a little nervous because I don't know how it behaves.  Is it similar to Spandex when you feed it through the machine?

Do they have to be serged?
