I’m not one to preshrink fabric before I sew things. I haven’t found this to be much of a problem (or any problem at all). Maybe it’s to do with what I make or something.
I hear so many talk about doing it. Who does, and why do you keep doing it? Maybe I’m missing out by skipping this step.
Also, how do you preshrink iron on interfacing? I’ve never been game to put it in the washing machine, though I suppose that’s a bit dumb considering most often that’s where it will go when the garment is made.
Thanks for your input.
