Sewing Your Jersey Fabric
Along with the actual Jersey Fabrics we are pleased to offer you all the ‘bits and bobs’ around the edges that make sewing Jersey easier and much more effective.
For more info head to our Jersey Fabric Made Easy Info. Page. However here are some crucial items.
Needles – Stitch with Jersey Ballpoint Machine Needles. The ball of the needle parts the Jersey fibres rather than piercing them to help ensure the elastic quality remain intact.
Thread – Stitch with Empress General Purpose Thread, this is a poly/cotton fibre. Alternatively if you would prefer to work with a pure cotton option Empress 100% Cotton Thread will also stitch perfectly.
Interfacing – Vlieseline (Vilene) Stretch Interfacings are created especially for working with fabrics such as Jersey. They add a little more body to make sewing easier.
