If my skirt has none of the seams showing through from pressing and I now stitch down the seam allowances to my organza underlining how will I get to seams to protect them with teflon press cloth (in the future) so they do not show through?

If I take to cleaners how will they not return with all the seams showing?

Should I not stitch down seam allowances? How about the lining should I not attach to the hemline fold?

Please help I really am stumped?

Terrific question! If the fabric has some texture, like a boucle or tweed, I would catchstitch them down. If it is smooth like a twill or gabardine, I would do a honk kong finish and leave them free. I am assuming there is no lining, just an underlining?

If you press your skirt inside out on a seam roll, aka, a one inch hardwood dowel, you will not get imprints no matter what. The edges of the SAs fall to the side of the roll and do not end up pressed. Just the seam line is pressed.
