I blocked the pieces before I seamed them together. I wet each piece and then used straight pins and pinned them to the carpet. It worked for me, but I know others have different methods of blocking.
Hi!I did the wet blocking too, and it made a huge difference in the way the fabric feels. I also really believe in blocking before seaming. I added the collar this evening and that's blocking right now too so it will lay the way I like it. Good luck!Leah
I did steam blocking and that worked really well, too. I was also ver impatient to get it done, so I didn't want to wait for the pieces to dry :-)
I pinned my pieces then sprayed some water on. Since I did mine in all over ribbing I wasn't sure if I could completely wet it.
