      >> two types/brands of fabric you probably want to look for: Illusion
      (essential 'skin tone' - comes in a variety of tones) or powernet
      (sometimes comes in different shades)

      Those two types of fabric have different uses. They are both knit and
      opaque (normally in different "skin" colors.

      Power net is meant to be used in "stress" situation, it's similar to the
      sides of bras and it's thicker version are the same thing that the
      modern slimmers are made out of. Basically, use it for control and
      heavy duty situation. It is pretty expensive.

      Illusion now-a-day comes not just in different colors and weights, but
      sometimes has a very subtle pattern knit into it to make it "fancier".
      You want to match the weight of the Illusion fabric with your non-cutout
      fabric if there's going to be any pull at all else you're going to end
      up with tearing, If the "cutouts" are in non stress places, you don't
      need to worry about the weight.

      Make sure to pre-wash both fabrics harder than you plan to wash the
      garment once it's made.

        >> Paint sticks?!?!?!



        Yup, my Viking has a two speed motor, will go right over paint sticks

        and balsa board w/ tension on the feed dogs light and the proper utility

        foot. Also will sew straight though the center of denim overall

        flat-fold seams or over 1/4 inch worth of knife pleats, etc. When

        you're doing movie/sci-fi stuff you never know what you're making next.



        Fun. Fun.
