Imagine you have invested all of your time and money developing your styles, your sizing and grading. You get an order and are so excited to swiftly put it into production. You want to impress the buyers with your quick turn around time. Just as you get ready to ship your order, you notice your garments have problems and can’t be shipped. Then the horror sets in. I can’t even begin to express how many times we have seen inexperienced designers produce fashion disasters. Either the garment is too short, it doesn’t fit, it’s puckering or the lining is hanging out. Sometimes it’s an easy fix and sometimes it’s far from it!
Always test your fabrics, especially before production. The following is the Treatment of Fabric Shrinkage :
By using the thermoplasticity of the fabric fiber, after the shrinkage of the fabric, the shrinkage fiber can be stretched back to its original state and cooling setting under the action of hot steam. This will normally restore shrunken clothing to its original state.
In addition, when washing clothes of different materials, you should pay attention to some situations: when washing wool fabrics, you should add a small amount of water or use quality dry cleaning aids, if possible, dry clothes in advance. Do not dry clean PVC or clothing containing polypropylene fiber. The temperature should not be too high when drying clothes.
