Hey you guys!

I was just wondering if anyone knew if there is a way to make polyester (yes, the '70s triple-knit kind) into something passable?  We have a bunch of my grandma's old clothes down in the basement and I really like the prints on some of them.

Thanks!

you can treat it like any other fabric, just don't expect it to magicaly not look polyester. Smiley If they are great prints I'd be inclined to just recut into trendy cuts.


If grandma is passed on and you want a keepsake, groovy 60's & 70's polyester make really fun teddy bears too Smiley I've done several keepsake bears for people.
