Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about my coat! I have been wearing it every day to walk to work. Although almost all the snow has gone from round here it’s still pretty cold. This, however, is not a snowscape.
It’s how the fabric for my latest project came out of the wash. Or rather, how one of the fabrics came out. The dress has two different coloured fabrics: a black base and cream trim. Both are lovely medium-weight cotton drills with a little cross-way stretch. The black fabric has come out of the wash with barely a wrinkle. I almost don’t need to press it before cutting. But I rather fear the white isn’t going to recover from its trip through the machine no matter how hard I press! Still, at least I found out now rather than after finishing the dress. It may be saveable; I’m going to get the iron going and see.
