Adding embroidery to some fabrics can cause distortion. This can be due to the density of the embroidery or the lack of thread count in the fabric. Adding a high stitch count embroidery design to fabrics like quilt cotton, batiste or silk can cause puckering and/or uneven outlines. Fusing Sheer Magic Plus to the fabric before stabilizing will give the needed support for the embroidery to relax and lay properly. Sheer Magic Plus will not change the drape of the material but removes the need for "over stabilizing" which can cause the design to become hard or stiff.
