Grrr…Polyester suiting….

Note to anyone sewing. Polyester sucks. If it weren’t so inexpensive versus the natural fiber versions (like satin or wool) I wouldn’t use it all!!! Trying to press it is awful especially this one. I’m working on a walking skirt to go with the Cincher Skirt It won’t press to a nice seam unless I turn the heat up so much it melts the fibers. So when you see the skirt for sale, it will be out of cotton or linen, not polyester suiting. I will do it out of wool gabardine or something like that but the price will go up for wool. So the only polyester I will work with now is special occasion fabrics (chiffons, organzas, satins, crepes)
