|There are times when you do everything right on a knit and it still will not submit to you sewing on it.
You use the jersey/ stretch/ ballpoint needle and you use tissue paper (which works but is too much work)...
As the last option, I interface the seams.
I sew with 1/4 inch or 1/2 inseams ,as I was trained in the garment industry ,so I cut fusible knit interfacing a little bigger that those measurements so that it is caught in the seamline.
Knit interfacing stretches crosswise so determine what direction you want it to stretch or not stretch.
This really works
but it is a labor of love...
