Tame Fabrics With Tissue Paper
In this article from Threads #186 (August/September 2016), Abby Riba shares some tips on how to use tissue paper to your advantage. She writes:
One of my favorite sewing notions is tissue wrapping paper. It works as pattern paper, of course, but I also use it at the sewing machine and serger. When you’re machine sewing, a layer of tissue provides support for flimsy fabrics and mitigates lateral shifting, whether you’re straight stitching or serging. You’ll be set to sew fine seams in delicate fabrics. Try using it when sewing narrow hems, too.
