* Satin is a finer type of atlas, smooth with gloss on one side and matte on the other. It looks great and works in very elegant, both fitted and puffy dresses.

* Mikado is a dense material with a characteristic ribbed texture, which is a mixture of various types of silk. One of the most expensive options used in exclusive dresses. Works in classic silhouettes, straight and flared dresses.

Features of working with different fabrics


- Minimize seams, tuck, and trim.

- Ironind of this material should be barely touching.

- Before utting, cover the table with a blanket so that the material slides less.

- Cut chiffon, georgette and crepe in one layer. Make the pattern complete. Pin it to the fabric and remove it only after stitching.

- Choose a thin thread for stitching.


- Make as few stitches as possible. However, for a form-fitting outfit, it is acceptable to use the set-up seams, if the lace material is dense and with a large convex pattern.

- Place the elements on the pattern so that you can best show the motif of the lace pattern. Place the parts of the rapport symmetrically at the back and front. In the place of seams, they should be combined.

- Individual elements of lace or a strip of curly edge can be cutted and used as applications.

- Before cutting the lace, you need to try on the outfit. First, you need to stitch and adjust the elements from the lining, and only then you can transfer the changes to the lace. If the lining is not expected, make a template from an inexpensive material.
