What is silk satin?
Silk satins are smooth, shiny, very fluid and slippery fabrics.
Satin is a type of weaving. It is an armor, just like the canvas, the chick, the poplin.
The satin armor belongs to the family of chain and frame fabrics (non -extensible) and consists of a very loose weaving.
The chain and frame threads are widely spaced in their intertwining, which makes the fabric very flexible and slippery.
Silk satins are shiny, silky, light, very soft to the touch and very pleasant to wear.

How to sew silk satin?
Silk is a fairly delicate material (but so beautiful!) To work.
You have to take care of it from start to finish.
Generally, it is necessary to wash silk and silk satins by hand, with an adapted laundry.
It is a material that does not support machine wash and not at all the dryer.
Then, to cut your fabric, the best is to place it flat.
It is a very slippery fabric: in fact, it is very difficult to cut parts of the sewing pattern of your choice at the fold, or x 2, in symmetry without the cut being distorted.
You have to arm yourself with patience and cut one by one each room with the flat fabric and place maximum weight on your fabric so that it is completely stabilized during the cut.
With the sewing machine, use a new microtex needle. Even if your MicroTex needle only served once, use a completely new needle for this fabric (do not throw the other, it will serve you for other fabrics!)
In terms of ironing, show caution and always use a Tattemouille (and do tests on fabric falls before starting).
For prettier finishes, do not hesitate to make English seams, which will also allow you to do without on topjet (and also change the surveys of the overweight so that they are new to sew the fabric).
