Depending on the weight of Crepe fabric, it can be used for dresses, tops, blouses, camisoles and soft jackets.
It is advisable to cover cutting table with a cotton sheet to prevent Crepe from slipping, cut in single layer and use sharp scissors. Use standard size machine needle with a stitch length of 2.5 mm and a good quality thread.
