IMPORTANT!  When purchasing fabric and elastic, please account for shrinkage and buy 5% more than required.

4. Matching thread — 4 spools (1 spool for the sewing machine + 3 spools for the overlocker)

− sewing machine for construction

− overlocker for construction and finishing raw edges. It can be replaced with a stretch overlock stitch or a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine (overlock or zigzag stitch width 2–3 mm, stitch length 2.5 mm)

− latch hook or a large-eye needle

Important! We recommend using specialty needles when working with knit fabrics and elastic (for example, STRETCH, SUPER STRETCH, JERSEY, etc.). When sewing, a ball-shaped needle point pushes the knit loops apart without piercing the threads.
