Sorry, here's the correct link to the stabilizer question here on Cute. I must have hit something besides 'copy' when I copied it, duh.

Here's a link to a question that was asked a little while ago about the mesh stabilizer, there's a lot of good information. If the shirt is very thin, like voile, or slightly see-through, the flesh colored iron-on mesh is good for this. The iron on or sticky keeps the fabric from shifting, and the mesh is soft. If you need more stability, more stitches than the stabilizer is rated for, you can put the mesh at right angles to each other, 2 layers; or, you can float a peice of tearaway underneath the hooped fabric & mesh stabilizer. For a regualr t-shirt, you can use normal weight cutaway, not heavy cutaway. Best of luck, I'm sure others will have more help for you. Hugs, Marji

Marji I think this is the wrong link. I can't find a discussion on the subject.

You're right, I must not have copied the other one. It's above.
