As costuras depois de lavadas – Seams after being washed

A Marita perguntou qual seria o comportamento destas costuras depois de lavar. O que a preocupa é se as costuras se mantêm abertas e se não vai haver problema depois ao passá-las a ferro. Para verificar o que acontece nesta situação (uma vez que eu própria desconheço o comportamento destas costuras depois de lavadas), molhei o tecido, escorri-o e enxuguei-o com uma toalha e depois sequei-o com o ferro. As fotos ilustram a sequência do processo:
Marita wanted to know if I was going to tack these seams; she worries they might not stay flat after washing. She also wonders how these seams will behave when pressed after washing. Since I was left wondering the same, I decided to make a test right away; I washed my swatch and rinsed it gently with a towel; then I used the iron to press it and dry it completely. Next pictures are a sequence illustrating the procedure:

Depois deste teste fico mais descansada!
Now I can rest my mind!

OK,OK, you convinced me, LOL!!!!thank you:-) oh, btw do you know the fiber content, or is it a mystery, have you made burn test?
I can be persistent, HUH??? sorry, DD want's this too and we're still hunting for the fabric:-(

Marita: It's Ok, lol, I'm as persistent as you are!! And I'm glad to help too! I asked for the fiber content when I bought the fashion fabric (sometimes I forget to ask but not this time), it's a 65% polyester 35% rayon blend. It shines a little and its natural wrinkles don't disapear when pressing. If you chose another type of fabric you may not have to underline it and use this seam method. I'm only doing this to prevent see-through and also because I don't like to see the ivory seam inside if I did a regular hong kong finish. Just listen to your fabric!
