Fulling garments

Garments will not behave in exactly the same way as the samples.There is more fabric and there are seams, both factors will alter the fulling process. Use your sample results as a guide only and check at every stage of the process because fulling is irreversible.

When the garment has fulled correctly, lay it out flat and pull it into shape, straightening the seams. Fulled garments are usually more figure hugging so try it on when it is almost dry. Gently pull the armhole seams so the sleeves sit correctly and arrange the neckband. Pull evenly around the edge of the body and sleeves for the correct length. Remove carefully and lay out flat to dry.
