|If you have a fabric that must be dry cleaned, put a label in your finished garment so you won't forget.
When I bought some 100% rayon recently, the bolt said "dry clean only." I try to avoid dry clean only fabrics and usually throw caution to the wind and wash the fabric before cutting and sewing it, however in this case I was making a dress that would be worn very infrequently, so dry cleaning would be ok. But would I remember that it was dry clean only? I'm not very good at telling rayon from polyester. I saw that the store (G Streets) had some "dry clean only" care labels so I bought some. I sewed one in and now I won't forget.
I did a google search and also found "dry clean only" labels available on line from voguefabricsstore.com, smockingstore.com, kehlerklassics.com and there are some sellers on eBay as well.
