How do I sew stretchy fabric without a serger?

Can I sew knit fabric without serger?

You can totally sew knit fabric on a regular sewing machine! Don’t let not owning a serger hold you back from sewing up comfy knit garments.

Can you use straight stitch on stretch fabric?

The main reason is that when sewing woven fabrics, we typically use a straight stitch, and straight stitches can’t stretch so they will ‘pop’ and break when the fabric is stretched. We therefore need to use a stitch that can stretch with the fabric, like a zig zag stitch.
