Hello all!
I need an advice. Due to a bunch of reasons I had to cut a pencil skirt crosswise. My fabric is medium weight wooven wool. What can I do to make sure it will hold its shape the longest?
Maybe underlining with a tight wooven cotton? No silk organza, I can’t afford it for this project.

      That’s easy!
      I can’t help wonder why, lenght wise is the right grain because fibers are tighter right?
      Thanks for always answering!
