Kleid Kleider



Long, precisely placed seams, swaying lines – when selecting the right sewing thread for a dress, the silhouette is of even greater importance than the fabric. The huge variety of dresses is a big challenge, something they have in common with blouses. Transparent, lightweight fabrics need to be sewn just as perfectly and durably as high-quality, classy materials such as silk or wool. The perfect sewing thread supports the look as well as the fit. AMANN sewing threads deliver the best possible performance here, too.




AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for dresses we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging.

Depending on the fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • for closing seams in coarser fabrics sabac 80, for the finest fabrics sabac 150
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX
  • for decorative seams sabac and Serafil in a wide range of tickets
  • for the finest blindstitch seams Serafil 200/2
