Sew Satin-Stitched Seams on Sheer Fabrics | Insider VideoSewing expert Kenneth D. King shows how to sew a satin-stitched seam for sheer fabrics.
Contributing Editor Kenneth D. King has developed a unique method for sewing reinforced seams in sheer fabrics. His approach calls for multiple stitching passes that incorporate extra fabric layers into the seam for added strength. The final stitching line is done with a wide satin stitch, yielding a beautiful band of closely spaced stitches that resemble a narrow ribbon along the seamline. This seam is reversible, too, making it perfect for garments in which you’ll see both sides.
