Can you use Stitch Witchery on Organza?

Recommended Posts

Ok I don't know what the overlay on my dress was but it didn't iron well. I tried steaming it with the hotel iron and accidentally scorched a small spot on the overlay. I would definitely do a test run before purchasing yards of fabric!

Yup. Born and raised. Hence the reason I was thinking we might actually do it. Don't know when I'll be out next, but maybe before the wedding, otherwise certainly before Xmas. Meetcha at FX McRorys?

yikes, good to know! at least it was lacy, and like champagne colored, kinda, right? so the hole might look like it was on purpose?

On purpose? Not quite but I tried not to think about it after it happened. Steve kept hugging me telling me to calm down. It was on my butt/hip area and it was the size of a quarter maybe. I then called my mom and sister to come look. They said it wasn't bad but I thought they were just trying to make me feel better. The day of the wedding though, I doubt anyone noticed. I know I didn't think about it once.

Oh yes. If you're going to iron organza (unless it's silk organza), it's made of poly. So put something (anything!) over it before you put the iron on it. That stuff will pucker and melt like butter if hit with direct heat!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
