I've pretreated a pile of summer fabrics ~ linens, cottons, rayons and yards and yards of cotton/poly batiste to be used for lining fabric. Several trips to the washing machine and through the dryer...then time spent standing at the ironing board pressing each piece.
I tend to pretreat summer fabrics by washing and drying them...whereas winter fabrics are either steamed using my steam generator iron or by a trip through the dryer with a wet towel. No matter the method, all of my fabrics and most of my linings are pretreated.
As I was standing at the ironing board, pressing the last piece (a cotton pique), I realized that with each piece, I pressed a hard crease into the center of the piece that I will only have to press out again. So I was wondering, if I'm the only one that does that? And if you don't do that, how do you handle the center of the fabric? Do you soft press it? Do you ignore it? Any suggestions on how to handle this would be appreciated.
So I have a few pieces sewn...pictures to come...
...as always, more later!
