So, I'm trying to make Bride/Groom shirts for my mom and her husband-elect. They want to have their reception at CiCi's and don't want to wear their formal attire to a pizza joint so they asked if I could make shirts for them. The groom shirt wasn't a problem. It looks perfect. The bride shirt however.....It is a hobby lobby tshirt, 50% cotton 50% polyester. This is what happened.

I'm thinking maybe it happened because I used a poly blend shirt. Has anyone had any experience with fixing anything like this? I was thinking maybe I could try bleach or paint.

Maybe you ironed/pressed for longer than you should, given the fiber content of the shirt. I have sometimes gotten a kind of brown burn on the shirt when I did that.

I would not bother with bleach. I don't think it will work on that sticky polyester stuff, and will probably just make holes too.  I would get a new tee shirt that is similar fiber content to the one that worked and try again.

Good luck!
