Pressing of Cotton/ Spandex Blends by
Hi, I have just received new uniform shirts that I must keep pressed. They are 98% cotton and 2% spandex. I have heard that you shouldn't use starch on this fabric. Would sizing be ok? The care label says to use a warm iron if needed- but that isn't getting the wrinkles out. Any suggestions...

Elastic insert on jeans by SML
Has anyone slit down a jean's waistband and inserted an elastic panel to enlarge the waist? It ends up as a v-shaped insert and makes the waist more comfortable. I've seen the finished product but don't know how to make it look good.

JoAnn's Cozy Flannel by duh who
So, it looks like Joann's Cozy Flannel is actually some rugged stuff. I couldn't pull apart threads like I can on most other flannels. Anyone else have any experience with finished garments from this stuff? I'm thinking about doing a shirt out of their Rust/Copper color.
