I’m taking up sewing again after awhile (I’m probably semi-demi-intermediate). How do you all get your pattern pieces nice and flat for cutting out? I was taught to dry iron my pattern pieces to smooth them out and make them nice and accurate for cutting out. The problem is, the pattern I’m using seems to not want to cooperate! I iron it and it’s slightly smoother but the folds are still there and most of the wrinkles. I suspect it was ironed to fit in the package (the pieces are somewhat large). my iron is a basic iron.
