Tips and Tricks:
- Steam or dry clean.
- For easy clean-up, cover the floor and cutting table with a clean sheet. Spread fabric in a single layer with the right side up to reduce fraying, do not cut until you are ready to sew; after cutting handle the fabric as little as possible. Use clips sparingly, avoid erasable pens; they may stain permanently.
- Baste as needed to avoid ripping
- For an elegant finish in unlined garments use Hong Kong binding with Silk Chiffon
- To add body to lightweight or soft embroidered fabrics, use silk organza, polyester chiffon or lightweight sew in interfacings
- Line the garment or bind seams with tricot or chiffon
- Test press. Many embroidered and embellished fabrics are easily damaged by steam and high heat. Use a press cloth when pressing the right side. Cover the pressing surface with a thick terry towel to avoid flattening or damaging the embellishment on the fabric
- To protect skirts and pants from clip hanger marks, sew in ribbon hanger loops at the waist
Hand washing may cause water spots, check a small piece to check. Dry clean recommended.
