Does anyone have a solution for knits that roll up at the edges. This is so hard to handle when cutting and pinning this type of fabric. There must be a way to handle this. Any suggestions?
Thanks, Pat

Marcy Tilton suggests using pins placed along the seamline parallel to the edge of the seam allowance. I like to use larger than usual seam allowances because the rolling is only at the edge. Stitch the garment and trim the seams with my serger. Usually once you get the roll flattened out enough to get the seam into the serger, the wide foot will tame the beast.

To the serger I will go. Thanks Susan. I knew there must be a way, but wasn't sure about the serger.

I spray starch the edges of my knits, spraying as many times that it takes to get the rolling edge to stop rolling. Works great for me.

Spray starch sounds like a great idea too, I'll give it a try.

I know it is to late for you now. But if you come across this problem again. I always wash the fabric before using and if I can see the edges rolling before I cut out pattern I usually starch before I cut it out. Makes it easier to cut and helps with the rolling.
