- The fabric is affordable and lightweight.

Tips For Sewing With Satin Fabric:
- Use sharpened scissors. This will prevent your cuts from fraying edges and pulling threads that will ultimately ruin the appearance of your fabric.
- Always cut the fabric in single layers.
- Consider cutting your pattern pieces on the bias. You don’t want to have too many seams as that will mean you have a higher chance of your project puckering.
- Use an appropriately sized sewing machine needle and a good quality thread. Use a short stitch length and hold the fabric taut as you feed it through the machine.
- When sewing slippery fabrics, you should use a walking foot. This will help both layers of cloth move through the machine at the same rate and avoid puckers in your seams.
- Finishing your seams is a must because satin frays very easily. Using zig-zag stitching on your machine is a good choice, as it's lightweight and won't show through the right side of the garment.
