Maybe someone knows what I’m doing wrong…I made a tailored skirt out of tropical weight wool. It is a plain weave and I think, worsted. I’m having difficulty pressing it, or rather, it it won’t stay pressed.
The skirt looked okay when I first finished it, but after wearing it once the seamlines seemed to unpress themselves and no longer look flat. I haven’t had this happen before. I’ve been a little concerned about burning the fabric by pressing it too hot, if that’s possible. Is there a way to keep it permanently pressed? Thanks for your suggestions!
