Water damage

20170325_182845I cut a blouse from a vintage pattern I’ve wanted to use for some time now, but always hesitated because really, those waists! I never had a waist like that and I certainly don’t know. Of course they’re meant to be worn with a corset but still.  I figured if I ignored the fitting folds in the back it might actually work.

Because the one side is really shiny, I thougyt it best to check if it would work to spray water on when ironing the seams and it was fine. I ‘m quite often good and irons every seam as I make it, but this time I was lazy and sew several before pressing. After i finished I realized that splashing water on it actually wan’t ok, it had gotten water stained. I’m assuming this is a cotton, it doesn’t feel like silk and it’s one of the fabrics my sister brought me from India so there is a limited supply.

Yes I know fabrics should always be washed behore using.

I can’t decide now if I should make a new one or proceed with the this one and hope the stains don’t show much.
