Run out of iron cleaner and you've gunked up your iron? Wrap a piece of white wax candle in a piece of soft clean old cotton or terry, warm up the iron then gently rub over the cloth/candle pad until the gunk melts onto the cloth. I would use my new iron to press the frills on the 6 long train Spanish flamenco skirts I have to make!
I've used sari fabric to make waistcoats and bed skirts. For the waistcoat I interlined with a silk organza before cutting out.
I also use lengths of Malaysian batik which comes preprinted for sarong skirts to make sundresses. The cotton fabric is very comfortable and it is a dream to sew. I have recently purchased some more and will make it into summer pants or a wrapped stitched skirt - haven't decided yet.
This is a great idea - very timely for me as I've just cut out a boatneck sweater that could do with some shoulder height.
Would really like to have a tute showing how to make shoulder pads from scratch one day. They are quite difficult for me to find where I live - we don't all have the luxury of haberdashery stores nearby!
This is so timely - I think I can use this finish for a jersey binding on a V neck dress that doesn't have a CF seam. Brilliant
