LIGHTWEIGHT SILK: Using too heavy a thread and/or needle on lightweight, silky woven fabric can cause seam puckering and snags. It pays to be mindful of this: the Sibylle could have hit quite a few bumps in the road. Use a finer needle, size 11/75, and a lighter thread. In this example, we used Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP® Fine polyester thread, used here on two different types of lightweight silk, needle size 11/75. Fine thread is perfect for any lightweight fabric including lingerie, bridal, specialty fabric and heirloom sewing. You can use this thread for creations like the Sibylle dress.
