I sew with quite a few rayon jersey knits and while I simply love this fabric, sewing it on a sewing machine can be a challenge. I've tried changing the needles, the thread everything but I still get skipped stitches.
So, I try using my Serger and Coverstitch machine for sewing with rayon knits but what if you need to use the sewing machine?
I discovered this late one night while finishing up my rayon knit top.
The reason we get skipped stitches I think is because the fabric is very thin and is yet very tightly knit. So stabilizing the fabric might work. A tear away stabilizer will work but what's even easier is using Solvy!
It's water soluble so all you have to do is throw the top in wash after you're done and voila!
I tried it and what do you know. It DID WORK! Now I never want to be without Solvy. The only painful part is to cut it into strips. I wonder if they sell water soluble tape. That would be perfect for this.
