Pareiza audumu kopšana

There are so many different fabrics and so many different ways to clean each of them, so that you don't get confused and know what to do, we have created a little insight into the care of fabrics to make it easier to clean the dresses bought from us, as well as when cleaning another type of clothing on a daily basis.

Care of cotton fabrics

Cotton fabrics are practical and resistant to high temperatures, this is one of the easiest fabrics to care for. There is a possibility that the fabric may shrink during the first wash. Cotton can be washed in a washing machine. We recommend washing colored cotton at a temperature of 30°-40°, while white laundry is washed at a temperature of 60°-90°.

Cotton fabrics can be dried in the washing machine, but be aware that it may shrink.

Our dressmaking workshop also has a variety of cotton dresses for little ladies as well as Mother&Daughter sets.

Care of taffeta fabrics

Taffeta is considered a very luxurious fabric that is not used for everyday wear. It is preferable to wash this fabric by hand - without rubbing or wringing it, so that unironable folds do not appear in the fabric. It is preferable to iron this fabric from the left side when it is still wet or from the right side through a wet fabric, the iron must not be hot. Taft does not stretch, so the garment can be safely stored hung on the shoulders.

Dresses of this luxurious fabric are also available in the MiniMeLook dressmaking workshop, so that both big and small princesses can dress up for a holiday or some other special life event.

Care of tulle fabric

Our dressmaking workshop offers a lot of dresses that contain tulle fabric, so we pay more attention to this section.

Tulle is a delicate fabric that needs to be handled with care. One of the basic rules for washing delicate fabric is not to wash it together with rough fabrics, such as towels, thick cotton, etc., because the delicate thread weaves can be torn and torn. It is best to wash tulle by hand, and in cool water, not hot. At high temperatures, the fabric may shrink and lose color. To remove stains from tulle fabric - dissolve the detergent for delicate fabrics in water, preferably liquid, not powdery, then put the tulle fabric clothing in this water so that it soaks thoroughly and, if necessary, rub the fabric with gentle movements, washing the stain. If, however, the tulle is stained more thoroughly, pour the detergent on the specific place and leave it for a while and then gently rub the fabric. Rinse the tulle fabric in cool water and cut out by gently twisting the fabric. You can still dry it if you wrap it in a tulle towel and twist it. The towel will absorb all the excess moisture and the tulle will be drier. After washing, it is best to hang the fabric in a place where it can stand straight, then it will straighten as it dries. It is not recommended to iron the tulle fabric, nor should you use a tumble dryer. If you cannot do without ironing, then do it by placing some thin fabric over the fabric and iron it with an iron heated at the lowest temperature.

As I already mentioned, tulle dresses are offered in a very wide range and certainly every lady - big or small can find the most suitable dress for a holiday, birthday party or a photo session.

Care of lace fabric

Lace has been popular in the past and has retained its popularity even today. Lace fabric can be different - both cotton, linen or synthetic fibers. Lace fabric is delicate and should be handled with care when caring for it. It is recommended to hand wash the lace fabric in cool water using a mild detergent and remember to avoid scrubbing the fabric too much. After washing, it is not recommended to wring out the fabric to remove excess water, so it is better to squeeze it lightly. Hand washing is the gentlest cleaning method; however, if you choose to use the washing machine, place the lace item in a mesh bag and use a gentle wash cycle. To dry this fabric - hang light fabrics on padded hangers and heavy fabrics flat to avoid stretching and even tearing from the weight of the wet fabric. If you are drying in the washing machine, choose low degrees. If ironing is required, place a thick towel on the ironing board and place a thin piece of cloth between the iron and the lace.

Lace is something that will definitely suit every girl and woman. We have also made sure that the dress sewing workshop has a wide range of lace dresses - both decorated with lace and sewn from lace fabric.

Satin fabric care

Satin is a shiny and smooth fabric that can be made from a variety of fibers such as silk, cotton, wool or polyester. The special way of weaving the fabric gives it a glossy and shiny appearance. Satin fabric is easy to care for - it can be washed both by hand and in a gentle mode in the washing machine. Always use cold water or a chemical-free detergent to wash satin. To preserve the luster of the satin fabric, keep it out of direct sunlight. It would be advisable to avoid pressing the satin fabric after it has been washed, as this can reduce the original size and shape of the fabric. After washing and drying the satin fabric, it's time to iron it. When ironing satin, be sure to cover the garment with a cloth, use the steam function of the iron and not too high a temperature.

Satin fabric is included in many of our wide selection of dresses - some dresses have a satin top, some - the entire dress is sewn from satin fabric, the variations are different.

We - a dress sewing workshop, create dresses from many different fabrics and materials, care for each dress is different. And it's worth remembering - if you properly and carefully take care of your clothes, paying attention to their variety and requirements, they will serve you for a long time and look great!
