2 way stretch on 4 way stretch

I'm sewing a piece of 2 way stretch pvc onto a piece of 4 way stretch pvc. Should I make the stretch on the 2 way stretch piece go vertical or horizontal?

Your best bet is to have the 2-way stretch pvc fabric stetching parallel with your seam. You will need to try very hard not to stretch either fabric while sewing the seam, otherwise you will get bunching with the 4-way stretch vinyl. Due to the difference in wieght and stretch of these two materials it may be inevitable to avoid, but doing as follows should minimize the effects as much as possible.
