I'm rereading this tutorial on how to reinforce the crotch of jeans. You said to use a tough, non-stretch fabric. But my jeans have a bit of stretch in them already - they're a cotton-elastane blend. I don't do well in non-stretch pants because my waistline changes so much when I sit and stand.
Should I still use a non-stretch fabric, or just try to find some denim that feels about the same degree of stretchy? And I assume that when I'm patching them what I want to do is stretch them while I sew so that when I wear them they won't stretch more than the patch. Is that right?
