Sewing tip - preventing puckering

I use a basic sewing machine, and if I sew a heavier piece of fabric on top of a much lighter weight piece, the bottom lighter fabric can pucker a bit, even if I baste them together. I work around this by always putting the lighter pieces on top. However, I cannot do this when sewing on invisible zippers because the heavier zipper must be sewn on top. I solve the puckering problem by putting a piece of paper underneath all layers and sewing it along with the fabric. After that, I rip out the paper, and voila!, no puckering. Printer paper works great for this purpose.

How to Add a Fabric Skirt to a Crochet Bodice

How to Add a Fabric Skirt to a Crochet Bodice

A fabric skirt can be added to pretty much any non-bulky crochet bodice. Simply find a tank top, sweater, or blouse pattern you like, and you're ready to go! We do recommend, however, that the finished bodice have enough "give" that you can get it over your head easily, otherwise you might have to figure out how to add buttons or a zipper to the fabric skirt, and we're trying to keep this simple. It's much easier to add a drawstring to the crochet part and cinch it down then to add buttons or a zipper to the fabric part.tutorial at crochetkitten.blogspot.com
