I was afraid of the needle perforations becoming "tear along dotted line" kind of thing. I guess the right thread tension and stitch spacing will keep the thread from cutting it further.

My machine can take a twin needle but I can't find a leather twin needle. Do you think a Schmetz 6.0/100 would be good enough for a french seam?
