1. To embroider on stretchy fabric, like this suit, you'll need to stabilize the fabric carefully with thin, yet strong stabilizer.
2. For embroidery on jersey, knits or any other fabric that has tendency to absorb stitches - remember to use water soluble topping film. It will prevent embroidery stitches from sinking into the fabric. And after embroidery is finished, you just wash it away in warm water.
