I am hoping to make a sheer blouse to go over a charmeuse dress. I bought some sheer polyester to make a muslin from, but I plan to make it in chiffon or georgette in the final piece. I’d appreciate any tips for sewing with these fabrics:
1. Your supposed to cut sheer fabric out between sheets of paper to prevent slippage while cutting, right?
2. I’m planning on using french seams and a rolled hem. Will that work?
3. The pattern called for 7/8″ bias cut tape on the neckline, but it looks too rigid. Is there another finish that would look better?
4. Is it enough to adjust the pressure lever on my machine, or do I need a walking foot?
Thanks for any tips you can send my way. I usually try to be more conservative in what I take on in a project, but I’m trying to pull an outfit together for a wedding.
