In this video, May Martin introduces us to Duchess Satin and gives us her expert tips on how to sew with it.
She describes the beautiful quality of the fabric and how well it drapes. As this Duchess Satin from Fabric Land is a whole 140cm wide, it is perfect for long length skirts and wedding gowns. May also testifies the price is very reasonable considering the high quality of the satin.
May explains why you should always leave a good seam allowance on this fabric to prevent the seams from bouncing. She also suggests using tissue paper to support the seams. This prevents the fabric from wrinkling and keeps the seams perfectly straight.
