I would like to make a suit out of wool crepe. I have never used this fabric before and I recently read in Sandra Betzina’s Sew Savey that it will shring a whole size, if you don’t dry clean it first. That’s not a problem. However, how much extra fabric should I buy, to allow for shrinkage (when I take it to the dry cleaner’s for shrinking before I sew it)? Does anyone have experience with this?
Thanks so much,
