Hey Ladies,

Quick question...

I learned how to sew when I was 7 yrs old, so I have pretty basic skills... Anyhow, I learned to always press my seams, hems, etc.. when sewing. I bought this really cute seer sucker fabric and tried to sew with it this weekend, but when I ironed it, it seemed to pull the sucker part out of the fabric... So the question is, how do you sew with seer-sucker fabric without ruining its texture?

Thanks!!!  Cheesy
I cann't quiet the creative monkey in my head!

Use a lower setting and no steam setting on your iron, and if you have a stubborn wrinkle lightly spray with a little water.

I don't iron seersucker at all and I love it because of that Cheesy If it gets pressed a bit much in the sewing process it should spring back in the wash.
