Hello all, this is my first post after lurking for about a week. I must say there are some very talented people out there! Anyway i'm hoping to make some skirts with some beautiful chiffon i have found, but i don't know how to hem it. Looking at garments made out of chiffon, they don't seem to use a normal hemming technique, it looks more like a tight blanket stitch. Does anyone know how to do this?
Also when making seams with chiffon is it best to use a small zig zag stitch at the very edges of the pieces rather than a normal seam? It occured to me that a normal seam would look ugly under chiffon.
Final question, what on earth is a serger?! They keep coming up in a lot of posts i've read, but i'm still none-the-wiser!
Thankyou for any responses
