Tips for sewing Laminated fabric
Thread: Use All-purpose thread.
Needles: Size 12 or 14, sharp. A smaller needle makes a smaller puncture hole.
Presser Foot: A Teflon coated presser foot will prevent the presser foot sticking when sewing on the laminated side. This is especially helpful when top stitching. A roller presser foot may also be used.
Use a longer stitch length (3mm or more) for seaming and topstitching. Shorter stitch lengths can have the affect of perforating the fabric.
Select a pattern with simple lines and seaming. Avoid eased, gathered or intricate shaping because the fabric does not give.
It isn’t necessary to straighten the grain on a laminated fabric, it will not shift due to the coating.
Cut in a single layer with the right side up. For pieces cut on the fold, fold wrong sides together.
Mark with chalk or smooth-edged tracing wheel.
Holes may remain in fabric, so place pins in seam allowances and avoid having to rip seams. If making a garment, be sure of fit and make alterations to pattern before cutting out.
Do not touch an iron to the right side. Use a warm iron on the wrong side.
Welt, flat-fell or topstitched seams will lie flatter than a plain seam, since seams cannot be pressed open.
