I purchased a delectable dark green 100% camel hair from FabricMart. My plan is to make a maternity voat with it, figuring that it won't get too much wear so i should be able to alter it later to non-maternity sizing.
However, I've never sewn with camel hair and i am not sure how to pretreat the yardage. I'd love to try Pam's method (Off the cuff style Blog ) where you steam wool by using a hot damp towel in a hot dryer.
Also, I've been reading the boards and some have suggested not actually pressing the camel hair, but only use lots of steam and finger pressing. That said, I only have about a week to construct the coat so lots of pad stitching and couture methods are not really an option just now.
Suggestions? Words of wisdom? Am I foolish to thing i can make Burda 7318 in around 8 hours? I was planning on view B, car coat length with a hood.
