The Livia Rayon Collection offers beautiful prints in a light rayon fabric, matched with a Burda pattern and you have the perfect summer blouse! Sewing with Rayon only requires a few steps to ensure your garment turns out. First, be sure to pre-wash your fabric and dry it. Avoid shifting of fabric when cutting by using weights and a rotary cutter. When sewing use sharp small pins and needles as to only puncture small holes into the fabric. Press your seams gently and on a relatively low heat, high heat can leave marks and cause your fabric to shine. Lastly, because of the nature of rayon, it is best to hang your project before hemming it.

The Livia Scalloped Lace is bright, fun and perfect for making a swimsuit cover-up. This is a quick sew project that will have you ready for a day by the pool or a trip to the beach!
