I’m making a dress of white cotton crinkle gauze, and to prevent it from stretching and to make it more opaque and stable, I am going to underline it in teal linen. Since it seems to be a bit more sheer when it’s been ironed, I was wondering if anyone knew a way to keep it flat? If iron it before I cut and sew the pieces, I don’t want it to shrink up unevenly when it gets wet. Will the sturdier linen keep the bodice pieces stretched flat?
