Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I just want to sew in an elastic waistband and i cannot get the tension right, on any project. is the higher number more tension or less tension, everything i try i still get the loops in the back of the fabric..??? Help
The higher number is more tension, lower number-less tension. There are two ways to apply elastis. One technique is to apply it to the wrong side, fold it over and top stitch. The other is to apply it within a wrapped binding. Zig zag will work fine but try to avoid excessive needle punches as this does weaken the elastic and tempts breakage.
