I am about to start on a dress using crepe back satin and can’t make up my mind whether to wash the fabric or not. I used crepe back satin a few weeks ago for my nanny’s wedding dress and pre washed it according to the care instructions but I have a lot of natural light in my craft/sewing area and as I was cutting it and working with it I could see these differences in color in the fabric…they were really large patches. I didn’t look at it that closely before I washed it so I am not sure if that is just how the fabric is…you can’t see the patches unless you are looking at it on an angle in very bright light. and the fabric I am using now is black and it is very dark and cloudy today so I can’t tell. I really need to get started because I have to have it for Thursday morning and I will be taking pics of it outside if the weather allows so I really don’t want to mess it up. but it is for a child so I know it will need to be washed in the future…sorry dry cleaning to me just doesn’t work! I would really apprieciate any input you could offer. Thanks!
