Mesh Top With Sewing Tips

Hello Everyone!!!

Sewing with mesh and other sheer fabrics can be a nightmare, but easy if you follow the techniques at the bottom of the page.
I made this top for easy wear, taking me from day to night. It does not crease and will be perfect to use when I'm on holiday.

I used Taffeta to finish the neckline off.

A rolled hem was used to finish the hems off.

Sewing Tips:

Use good quality polyester sewing thread.
A size 60 or 70 universal or sharp machine needle will work best.
The use of a teflon presser foot will glide smoothly over the fabric.

Or the use of a strip of tissue paper, pinned under the fabric seam allowance, may be used to stabilize the fabric.

Gently tear the tissue paper away from the seam.

Use medium heat and a muslin pressing cloth to press the seams.
