Internet seamstresses are the best. There's so much great info out there. If you are having problems topstitching your stretch denim, definitely check out this thread. Some things they recommend:
- lightening the presser foot pressure (sadly, not an option on my machine)
- using a tear-away or water soluble stabilizer
- using a longer stitch length
- using a presser foot with a groove on the bottom
- using a walking foot
I think the walking foot is the golden ticket. Unfortunately, they can be quite pricey, so I'm hoping Santa can help me out. For now, the jeans will have to wait. It's for the best, since it's high time I got started on sewing presents for other people. I thought, however, that I would collect some sewing jeans resources for people to investigate if they are going through similar struggles.
I could post a series of links, but instead I decided to just do a Pinterest board, which is more visually appealing and easier to add links to later on. You can even add stuff to it if you want, although you have to email me first so I can add you. Gah! Online learning communities make me feel so warm and fuzzy - how about you?
