permanently pleated polyester fabric sew

seac | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I bought some permanently folded,not crinkled polyester fabric for a dress. I cannot get my machine to sew through it without pressing interfacing on it. That worked fine for the neckline, shoulders and sleeves, but not I need to take it in so it fits better. Any suggestions on sewing this fabric? Thank you. seac

    If your machine has a roller foot available, that may help feed this bumpy fabric more smoothly. This kind of foot actually looks a little like an all-terrain vehicle--4 little rollers, one on each corner of the foot.

    Or, try a walking/even-feed foot.

    Or, try tissue paper over the pleated side, between presser foot and fabric.

    Hope that helps.
