Pressing Matters

Filed under: Tutorials — phyllisc @ 5:53 am

Diva Ann, who is on a scuba vacation with her family this week, has an excellent article in the latest issue of Threads that every sewer needs to read. It’s about proper pressing during construction, which is a subject completely different from ironing. For truly professional results, you must really spend as much time at with your iron as you do with your sewing machine. Trust me, seeing a well-made but unpressed garment just drives the Divas crazy – all six of us agree that pressing is an essential sewing skill.

In addition to the article, you can watch watch and download a video podcast of Ann demonstrating the techniques she writes about in her article.
