I made a skirt of of a polyester taffeta and the major issue for me was making sure to use a low heat setting when I pressed. I prewashed so I think that helped with any potential shrinkage issues, but if my iron was too hot then the fabric started to crinkle. I used steam but I think if I worked with it again I wouldn't since I'm sure it contributed to the crinkling. I can't remember the size of the needle I used - either 70/10 or 80/12 universal.
While my skirt came out beautiful, polyester taffeta doesn't breathe *at all* so it isn't my most comfortable skirt to wear, even though I lined it with Ambiance.
