Question about Janome MyLock 634D Mechanical Sewing Machine
I want to sew flat seams on stretch fabrics like spandex . How do I achieve this.
It sounds like you may be stretching the material a bit too much or the dogfeed is pulling it through too stretched. You could try sewing through tissue paper and seeing if it feeds better without pulling if you need to have that much extra stretch on the fabric as you sew it. Or, if the machine has it you may want to adjust the dogfeed a bit.
Try adjusting and test it on a scrap piece until it sews the way you want it to. Some sergers have a special foot that will stretch the elastic along the fabric as it sews. I think your machine may be able to do that. I'm trying to imagine why you're needing to stretch the material into the elastic instead of the other way around and I'm afraid I don't quite understand that part enough to think of what else to advise you to do.
