Silk Charmeuse pronounced [shahr-moos]. Silk Charmeuse is a lustrous satin on one side, pebble type crepe on the other side. Both sides can be used to create dramatic one color interest with texture by alternating satin then crepe sides. Silk Charmeuse drapes like water, feels like liquid on the skin.
Silk Charmeuse can be pre-washed before garment construction to insure a garment that can be washed after wearing. If no pre-washing is done, garments need to be dry cleaned only.
To determine yardage requirements on patterns, always use “with nap” fabric requirements. When cutting out garment patterns on silk, always use the “with nap” cutting layout. When sewing Silk Charmeuse use new small sharp sewing machine needle. For crisp finishes, interface with silk organza, for soft finishes interface with silk chiffon. Seam finishes can be Hong Kong finish, French seam or serged.
Steam seams as you sew with a finish steam done after completion of the garment. After the finish steam, let the garment dry flat before hanging on padded hangers.
Silk Charmeuse is beautiful in blouses, draped dresses, lingerie and bias cut evening gowns. When applying perfume and/or deodorants, never spray these products directly on any silk garments. Even small droplets of perfume or hairspray can cause spotting on silk.
