View Full Version : Casa Satin! PLZ HELP!

so I'm working with casa satin for my FFXII Ashe cosplay, and I can't get it to stop puckering. I already tried adjusting the tension, any advice?

Are you using a Sharp needle? Your gonna want to use something like a "#60, #65" needle. Anything thats ballpoint or for heavier fabric will make it pucker horribly D:

If getting a sharp needle doesn't help, also try using different thread--if you accidentally got embroidery thread, for example, it'll pucker worse. You can also try ironing it a little extra bit or cleaning out your bobbin case--sometimes lint caught in there makes it not sew so well. Do you have enough pins holding it in place, too?

I had plenty, but the thread I was using was a bit thick....that could be it. Thanks for of your help!
