How do you like that seven D fabric?
The Seven D
fabric is fantastic stuff. It's so thin, you can't tell if you are holding a single layer or two. It is shiny black on both sides and very smooth to the touch. You have to hold it up to the light and look through it to see the ripstop pattern.
It is a little bit stretchy in the hand. So, it is mandatory that you hold the fabric on both sides of the foot as you feed it into the machine, both on the side going in and the side coming out. Also, you want to use the maximum stitch length and I used a tension of "1". If you don't do these things, the very thin fabric will bunch up on you. However, if you do all this, it is just like sewing silnylon.
