What Is The Cutting Method for Lightweight Fabric

Lightweight Fabric has a light and elegant material style. Some materials have a certain permeability because they are light and thin. Most of them, whether silk fabrics, chemical fibre fabrics or blended fabrics, have good air permeability and moisture permeability, so they are mainly used for making summer clothing.

The lightweight fabric is often loose in structure, soft in texture and poor in dimensional stability. In garment manufacturing, problems such as panel deformation, small and flat seam, fabric shrinkage and wrinkle structure deformation, drapability restriction and seam separation often occur. Therefore, in the face of lightweight fabric, we should pay attention to the following aspects:

The lightweight fabric is especially easy to slide during cutting, resulting in uneven edges of garment pieces. In order to prevent the pieces from shifting out of shape, the fabric can be fixed on the paper of the same size with a pin. During spreading, attention should be paid to keeping the tightness of the fabric consistent and the horizontal, horizontal and vertical blood of the thread. The fixed pin should be selected at the edge of the fabric or at the neutral position of the garment piece. When the fabric edge is tight, cut the fabric edge properly or transfer the fabric edge. For some high-grade lightweight fabric, in order to prevent warp and weft yarns from twisting or the upper and lower layers from being dislocated, the fabric can be fixed on a thin fine white cloth and then cut together with the white cloth. For some parts with higher precision requirements, the same method can also be used for cutting.
