I am having trouble hemming a dress. It “wrinkles” as I try to fold it over and sew it. I know I should press it, and I do, but the problem is that the fabric is covered with raised gold glue dots and the iron melts/burns it off. Also because it is raised the fabric doesn’t really get pressed.
The fabric “wrinkles” diagonally as i try to sew and it “puffs up” – I’ve attached 2 photos to try and show what is happening.
