  • Scoring 3 pass blackout lining

    I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but before ironing in a crease in my 3 pass B/O lining I score the wrong side with a fine crochet hook - This helps with folding the fabric ready for ironing. Great for side turnings and hems.

    Which is the wrong side of 3-pass blackout? The smooth side, or the woven side?

      Hi Amanda,

      The smooth side is the wrong side.

        Thanks, Cat!

        Also, another question about 3 passblackout .... I am going to use it for some blackout face-fixed cascade roman blinds and after reading all the forums, I have decided to use the blackout as an interlining , but my question is, can you use it sideways (across its grain) or do you have to use it lengthwise? If it's a bonded type of fabric, is there a difference between its cross grain and its lengthwise grain?

        Thanks,
        Amanda

          ..... and also, presumably you don't have to interlock the blackout layer on a roman blind, because the stab stitching will hold all three layers - face, blackout and lining - in place?
          Thanks again.

            Yes to both of those Amanda. Its quite stable to railroad the lining, and stab stitching holds it all in place.

              Thanks! I've never heard the expression "railroad" the fabric. I like it! Especially as with 3 pass blackout it seems that many people would like to throw it in front of a train and leave it there forever...

                Ha! well said Amanda. Give it it's due, it is fantastic for its purpose, and nice and heavy and drapey, but hell to sew.
