before - it was tricky to cut straight, but no real problem to sew.
Organza, however... it's different. It's crisper than chiffon, and slippery. Really slippery. It has a lovely sheen though, and an amazing clarity. Imagine 10 denier stockings, but crunchy!
Anyway, I took the longest piece of organza that I had - just over a metre. Ideally, it would have been 30 centimetres longer, but this was just a scrap I had in my stash. It is about 45cm wide.
I sewed a short (0.8mm) straight stitch 1cm from each long edge. I folded along the stitch line, sewed a tiny wee zig-zag to minimise fraying, and trimmed. If I wasn't lazy, it would have looked nicer with a handrolled hem, but... I am lazy.
P.S. This is officially Auckland's hottest summer. Apparently, it's been pretty damp, too. Look what happened to my $50 stainless steel rotary cutter after two weeks of humidity!! Time for some new blades... sigh.
