I am making some tablecloths from sparkle organza. Has anyone used this fabric? I am planning on using a three thread overlock.

Any assistance would be GREATly appreciated!

I have made some coverings for chairs and some shawls with this. I used the tiny rolled hem and french seams. I have never used a seager on it, but I am not a seager fan (cause I never get it right).

I've used this pretty stuff a lot, as I have done a number of weddings where they had dresses, overskirts, stoles, sheer jackets, bows for hats, etc. made of sparkle organza. I have always used French seams and rolled hems with success. MariLynntx
