Pro-Sheer Elegance fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric before turning it up and hemming. This gave me a finish I am really happy with.
Emma One Sock, and it is a beautiful, robin's egg blue, striped, medium weight linen. You probably know I love capris, and The Sewing Workshop has a pattern that I really like and have made three times now. To prepare my linen, I washed on warm and tumble dried, before making my garment. From now on I will simply wash the linen capris and hang to dry. Since discovering this advice on Marcy Tilton's website, I do this for every piece of linen I make into a garment, and have not been disappointed. I do not have very many clothes that are dry clean only, and I definitely don't want any of my linen to have to be cleaned that way. Therefore, you will notice that my garments always have that recognizable wrinkled texture that washed linen is famous for.
Have an awesome week everyone!
