Hi for everyone
I have a problem that I could not solve searching through archive from the beginning of times… So I hope for your kind advice here.
I have a piece of beautiful fabric, witch is blend of linen and silk, 50% and 50%. It is woven like a brocade (misspelled?). One side of the fabric shows off more silk, another shows off more linen.
Unfortunately I do not know how to pre-shrink it or which treatment does it need before cutting out and sewing? Should I soak it and dry in tumble dryer on the low heat setting or what do you suggest? I’d like to wear it, but I dare not fetch out my shears, not yet.
I apologize for my poor language, but English is not my primary language, I hope you understand me.
