I just finished embroidering these two tank tops with the GiGi Alpha from Planet Applique isn't the alpha adorable? I love the double effect.
I used Floriani's No Show Fusible Mesh first to stabilize the fabric and then once the embroidering was all done I ironed on tender touch (or Floriani has their own version - Dream Weave) on the back so it would be soft against the skin.
If you haven't used these products yet, you should really check them out. They are what Target and Walmart are using on the back of embroidery for baby's clothes and it really makes a difference on your finished product and a much better wearing experience for the people who get your beautiful projects.
