2. Additional material (ribbing), 120cm wide, for all sizes and heights - 6cm.

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

3. Matching thread - 5 spools (1 spool for the sewing machine and 4 spools for the overlocker).

- sewing machine for construction;

- overlocker for construction and for finishing raw edges. This may be replaced with a stretch overlock stitch or a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine (overlock or zigzag stitch width 2-3mm, stitch length 2.5mm);

- coverstitch or coverlock machine for flatlocking seams and finishing the bottom hem and sleeve hems. If you don’t have a coverstitch machine, it can be replaced with a twin needle on any regular sewing machine capable of sewing a zigzag stitch.

Important! We recommend using specialty needles when working with knit fabrics (for example, STRETCH, SUPER STRETCH, JERSEY, etc.). These are ballpoint needles, so they part the threads of the fabric you are stitching rather than piercing them.
