Getting back to some sewing after a too long work-heavy period! I have this gorgeous micropleated ?chiffon from EOS that I am going to make a flowing skirt with. I have read that I need to tape it when I cut it out and stay stitch to keep the pleats in, tho I am not sure what to do with the seams then - can't do french seams I don't think as some of the panels cut across the bias and I could see that being very difficult. Straight stitch and then serge narrow??

No idea what to do with the hems so that they finish nicely and maintain their wonderful springy quality - any ideas

Thanks
Petra

Click on your link and then up at the top there is a link for sewing tips. EOS has several recommendations for hemming and seaming. Hope this has the information you need!
