Noa Lace Camisole Sewing Tips:

In this DIY lace camisole tutorial, you will learn how to sew delicate fabric and trim, join seams together and also clean finish the edges to create store-bought quality essential garment. If you are not familiar with sewing lightweight satin or charmeuse fabric, here are sewing tips that will help guide you along the journey.

  • Sewing Machine: To sew silk or polyester blend charmeuse, you do not need special sewing machine. All you need is the correct needle and a good quality cotton or polyester thread. Don’t forget to choose a flat-bottomed foot for the sewing machine. Walking foot is a great alternative to help keep the silk from sliding around while sewing. 
  • Cutting Tips: Cutting charmeuse requires slightly different method to make the lines smooth and straight. Placing old tissue paper in-between the fabric does help to stabilize the material to achieve accurate shape and measurements when cutting.
  • Sewing Needle: For sewing machine, go with 90/12 or 90/14 size for delicate and lightweight material. The fine and sharp needle will leave small holes in the fabric. For any hand sewing, the ideal size is 60/8 Microtex or universal needle. 
  • Ironing Method: If you are using 100% silk, be careful not to damage the surface. Always iron on the wrong side or use a pressing cloth to assist and prevent the silk from losing the shiny look. 
  • Puckering Issue: Lightweight satin or charmeuse tends to easily pucker when not sewn correctly. In order to prevent puckering, adjust the stitch length by shorten the setting to size 2.5 length.
