Sewing with Jersey, help please.
My name is Fiona and I am new to eSewing. I have learned quite a bit via the videos, thank you.
I am going to make a dress for myself with Jersey material, I have never sewed with Jersey before and I have heard it is not the most friendly fabric to work with unless you have a few tricks.
Should I pre-wash the Jersey fabric.
Can I use just the serger to sew my dress if so which stitich should I use.
I should be getting my serger tomorrow and I am new to using a serger but would love to use it.
What tention would be best for Jersey, should I use 3 or 4 threads?
Should I just use the sewing machine or a combination of both machines?
Is there a certain type of needle I should use?
Also what is the best way to hem Jersey to make it look nice, as it is a dress?
The dress will have long sleeves,any tips for sleeves with Jersey material?
Are there any other tips worth knowing before I begin my project?
So sorry for all the questions, but I am eager to start sewing again as this is a hobby of mine I have not been able to partake in as I have a busy life with work and kids, but I need to start sewing again and be creative.
Thank you in advance for all the help you can give regarding Jersey..I think I am all set to begin once I get all the tips and advice. I am hoping my serger comes tomorrow, I do have my sewing machine as well.
Thank you and best wishes
