How to Work with Sheer Fabric

Apr 30, 2013
Article Image
Sheer fabrics are a big trend for spring, shown on the runways as skirts, maxidresses, pantsuits, and more. But not everyone can-or wants to-wear a sheer skirt or pant. The good news is that it’s easy to capture many of the same ethereal qualities of a sheer garment and maintain wearability when you layer sheers together or pair them with other fabrics. Inventive pairings can change the appearance of the underlying fabric or the sheer, resulting in some unexpected yet wonderful combinations. Learn how to mix, match, and create in this article from Threads issue #154.

    Just what I needed....I have several different sheers and too few ideas for them. Now I feel more confident in how to sew them AND I have several ideas of just how I will use them now. Thank you.
