The outfit is lovely! Perfect play clothes!
As to your ?’s…
First, when using the stretch stitch, what settings do you use as far as length, width, and tension? When I use the stretch stitch, the length is 2.5, width is 2.0. And I put my presser foot is set at a 2. Honestly, I don’t use that stich very much. I have a seam/overlock stitch on my machine and I prefer to use that.
Secondly, when using your twin needle (which I really liked), what stitch length and tension do you set your machine on? I lengthen the stitch to a 3 or even a 3.5. And I use wooly nylon thread in the bobbin. I will still occasionaly get popped stitches but not that often.
Any other suggestions?
I haven’t used a walking foot for knit sewing in years. I figured out that by lessening the downward pressure of my presser foot eliminated the need for it. I’d take a look (if you haven’t already!) in the sewing machine manual for your machine and see what it says about sewing with knits. Mine had some suggestions for stitches (the seam/overlock) that I had never heard of. It took some playing around to find exactly what worked best for me on my machine…and I do things a little differently when I sew knits on my mom’s machine.
