While at Wal-Mart the other day I found some fabric that I really liked the feel of for a dress in the $1/yd bin. Being the idiot that I am I didn't think to look at the instructions for washing this fabric. I do know for content it said rennet of indeterminate origin. Since, if possible, I would like to be able to machine wash and dry this dress, should I just pre-wash the fabric like that and not worry about it, or should I hand-wash the fabric, and only hand-wash the dress afterwards
I found a pattern and fabric I like for a skirt. got the pattern piece cut from the pattern, and when I went to go pin the pattern pieces to the fabric, I realized I had no where to lay the fabric out. The largest space I have avalible to work is a little larger then normal office desk. Due to the setup of the house, that is also about the size of the largest floor space available in any one area, but it is also slightly smaller then the largest pattern piece.
I normally use liquid startch for a size, but looking at the ingredients the first three are water, corn starch, and borax followed by perservitives, fragrance and something for ironing. Is it possible to make my own size from just the first three ingredients?
