I’m sewing a dress for my daughter out of polyester satin, which I have never used before (I love my cotton!)
I am finding that I can’t get the hems to iron completely flat, they have a little body to them, and the fold is not sharp-sharp. could I use a little iron-on-webbing to hold the hem in place? would that stay in even after laundry? would it show from the right side of the dress?
I am asking about the hems on the seamlines, not the bottom of the skirt 🙂
do I need to control the edges of the fabric in any way to stop them from unravelling?
I am torn between making this a beautifully constructed dress, and remembering that it is for an 8-year-old (!), and it will be stained about 30 seconds after it goes on…!
thanks for your help,
