8" Dressmaker scissors have serrated blades that pull the fabric to the scissors and hold it in place rather than pushing it like traditional scissors do. This design is excellent for sheer or slippery fabrics because it gently grips the fabric for a cleaner cut. Serrated edge scissors are very sharp and strong, making them ideal for cutting multiple layers of fabric with ease. The handles have a contoured grip, designed for comfort and balance. These shears feature long lasting, lightweight, stainless steel blades.
