In this video May introduces us to Chinese Satin Fabric. She describes it as a lovely, inexpensive fabric which is perfect for costume making.
May offers us lots costume ideas. This Chinese fabric would make a fantastic fairy-princess dress, butterfly wings or matching costumes for a hen do. This smooth, shiny fabric will only cost you a fraction of the price of other satin options. Although you are not investing a lot, the material has great impact, with high shine and lots of colour options!
May notes that Chinese Satin can be a little challenging to sew. Because of its softness, it can pucker if you are not careful. She recommends using a sharp, 70 or 80 needle in your sewing machine. Take your time constructing the seams and feeding the material through.
There are over 20 different colours of Chinese Satin Fabric available at Fabric Land. What are you inspired to create?
