|I had ironed the skirt numerous|
times at this point - YUCK
I think everyone knows that one should press while sewing. However, what I tend to do is iron rather than press.
With my Vogue 6329 skirt that I do love, I have not shared pictures of the final product because every single picture showed a terribly wrinkled skirt. As the skirt hung on the dress form it didn’t look so bad. But boy, looking at the photos what a wrinkled mess!
So off I went to iron it …again…and again….and again with steam….but I was ironing NOT pressing.
Finally, I made a pressing a pressing cloth and went to town with a water/vinegar solution. And the skirt started to look better.
|Better but not perfect|
Albeit the skirt smelled a little vinegary for a while…phew but it was worth it. I am still not 100% happy but I am definitely happier and no longer embarrassed. I tend to be very tentative with an iron. That must stop!
