I hope someone can provide me with some wisdom here. I had a dress sewn for me by someone. When I put it on the first time, it was perfectly fitted and figure-hugging. As the day went on, however, it was stretching slightly in all places and becoming somewhat baggy. The type of fabric she used is some kind of rayon, so I became puzzled as to why it stretched like that. I pulled the fabric with my fingers in one direction…then another…and realized that the lady cut the fabric in crosswise direction! I sew myself, so I right away saw what the problem is. It was a big square piece of fabric, so she probably cut without determining the lengthwise direction first!
Emotions aside, I now have to see if I can save the dress somehow. I was thinking of applying iron-on interfacing to the entire dress (obviously, cut to match the parts) to stiffen up the fabric and prevent stretching. Has anyone done this before? Anybody thinks its a bad idea or has any other advice? Any word of wisdom will be appreciated! I would really like to not throw this dress away, but the form it takes is really unflattering.. Thank you all for any input!
